"Batt's sense of drama gets full play in his excellent
cabaret act, in which an eclectic selection of songs is given their
full value in his strong-voiced renditions, the numbers linked by
engaging patter, including amusing biographical anecdotes about
childhood in his hometown of New Orleans."
"Batt has both the talent and charisma to forge a lasting presence on the [cabaret] circuit." The Stage
"There are triple-threat stars, and then there's Bryan Batt. He sings. He dances. He acts. And he's one of the most brilliantly funny comedians on Broadway today." Broadway world
Last year, Bryan Batt literally blew the roof off at Crazy Coqs with his wonderful and amusing show BATT ON A HOT TIN ROOF and he returns again with the show, which is born out of Hurricane Katrina. Broadway veteran, film star (Twelve Years a Slave) and MAD MEN star Bryan Batt grew up in New Orleans, a city that fostered his love of music and theatre. After experiencing the flooding and devastation of his hometown, he put together a one-man cabaret show paying tribute to his life there.
The music from the show features Broadway and some original material written for Bryan, peppered with the comedic skills that only Mr. Batt can provide. The cabaret experience is a divine exploration through his wacky and wildly entertaining mind.
Television audiences know Batt from his two-time Screen Actors Guild Award-winning performance as Salvatore Romano on the critically acclaimed television series Mad Men; he was also a regular on Ugly Betty. New York audiences have been delighted by Bryan's brilliant stage performances in Jeffrey, Beauty and the Beast, Cats, Starlight Express, Sunset Boulevard, La Cage and The Scarlet Pimpernel. He recently starred as Judge Turner in the award winning film 12 Years A Slave and appears in Tom Hanks' Parkland.
