MARK NADLER: CRAZY 1961
The songs and events of 1961
When is a one-man show a three-ring circus? "Cabaret" doesn't only imply Julie Wilson in her suave feather boas or Mabel Mercer enthroned on her singing stool: Pianist-singer Mark Nadler shows how the Great American Songbook can be reanimated with the frenetic, verbal-physical energy of Danny Kaye and the Ritz Brothers. - Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
Out cabaret star Mark Nadler is one of the greatest showmen of our time, capable of leaping from floor to piano bench, tap-dancing madly, singing and keeping steady eye contact with the audience - all this while playing a complex passage on the piano without even glancing at the keys. - Jonathan Warman, The New York Blade.
