"…as vocally, comically and theatrically assured as contemporary cabaret performers get." The New Yorker Magazine
In "REMEMBERING MABEL", KT Sullivan salutes Mabel Mercer, 'the singer's singer,' with songs introduced by her such as "Love For Sale," "Fly Me To The Moon," "It Was Worth It", and "While We're Young" as well as songs identified with Miss Mercer like "Just One Of Those Things" "Down In The Depths On The Ninetieth Floor", "Once Upon A Time," "Experiment" and "When The World Was Young",
In between the singing, KT Sullivan will share anecdotes about Mabel's life which began in England's Music Halls, continued as a headliner at Bricktops in Paris before World War II and culminated with her becoming the Queen of New York's night life after the war and remaining on her throne into the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Frank Sinatra once said "Everything I know about phrasing, I learned from Mabel Mercer".
KT Sullivan is one of America's top cabaret performers and her shimmering soprano voice and interpretive skills make her one of the hardest working and most in demand singers in cabaret, often performing at the major jazz and cabaret rooms in New York.
She has also headlined at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall and Lincoln Centre and has performed internationally in Europe and Australia. Her Broadway credits include "The Three Penny Opera " with Sting, the play "Broadway" directed by George Abbot.
Liza Minnelli presented KT with the Manhattan Association of
Cabaret's Outstanding Female Vocalist Award. She has also received
the Mabel Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Mabel Mercer
Foundation and this year became their Artistic Director.
