Mark Nadler


                                  TEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD SEE
"It takes a comic spark plug touched with brilliance to pull off the kind of tour de force that the maniacally exuberant singer, pianist and cutup Mark Nadler has brought in his one-man show.  In his musical sweep and show-business savvy, Mr Nadler might be compared to Victor Borge... With his ferocious pianism and crowing delivery, he is a traditional show-biz virtuoso!"
--Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“From the moment he bounds onto the stage  Mark Nadler exhibits a spellbinding manic energy…Nadler, who has a rich voice, is also a splendid pianist.  The act goes far beyond its ostensibly giddy premise…  What Nadler demonstrates is that great cabaret is really great theater, stimulating and exhilarating, outrageous and hilarious.”                                                                                                                         --Howard Kissel, Daily News


“Nadler--who’s also a superb pianist and damn good tap dancer—is as entertaining as he is educational.  The big-voiced, expressive-eyed performer gets right to the heart of every song—you may even weep for joy                                                               Brian Scott Lipton, New York Post


“Mark Nadler kicks up his heel with the brilliant “Tschaikowsky (and Other Russians)”.  Nadler’s revue starts off dissecting that famous Gershwin-Weill tongue twister, but quickly becomes an involving lesson in history, musicology and humanity told in rapid-fire bursts of energy that verge on genius (well mad genius)…Cancel all your plans and see the show you’ll be talking about for days afterward. If you don’t go, you’ll miss the best show of the year!”

--Scott Jolley, Time Out New York

“The result is like Victor Borge meets Hellzapoppin’…He’s a combination of all the Marx Brothers put together….       what he does is risky, impudent and defies description. … an original.  Talented and fearless, he never runs out of fresh ideas, and he has the wacky style and infectious humor to pull them off!”

--Rex Reed, The New York Observor

“Nadler plays confident piano, sings in a bracing baritone and even manages to insert a soft-shoe tap dance without ever leaving the keyboard.  Add to that a zany comic persona that falls somewhere between the antic pianistic invention of Victor Borge and the lanky expressive goofiness of Ray Bolger….A refreshingly novel show.  ”                                                                                                                     --Robert Daniels, Variety
“His ideas are uniformly brilliant and so is his execution…when the goofy lad decides he’s simply going to play, he often reaches concretizing levels. If you think Victor Borge was funny, you ain’t seen or heard nothing yet!”                                                                                                               
--David Finkle,
The Village Voice                         

……. a show that will be talked about for a long time to come.  Already considered to be in a musical comedy class by himself, Nadler has truly raised the bar…..  the  most extraordinary cabaret act that you’re likely to see this year—and yes, we are fully cognizant of the fact that we are making that statement in early January.”                                                                                                                                                          --The Siegels’ Nightlife Notes,

“On his deathbed Mark Nadler will be standing, jumping, trampolining, climbing the walls, slashing out arpeggios on a bouncing piano, spouting brilliant on-the-spot wisecracks out of ancient lyrics, bringing joy and vigor and naughtiness and sexual freedom to all.”
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       --Jerry Tallmer, Gay City News


“Mark Nadler’s Tschaikowsky (and Other Russians) is Cabaret’s Angels In America.”
