Having triumphed in their recent Oak Room salute to Cole Porter (“oo la la! C’est magnifique!”…NY Times)…KT Sullivan and Mark Nadler now turn their considerable talents to two more greats of the musical pantheon, George and Ira Gershwin. From March 9th through April 10th in their new Oak Room show—GERSHWIN…HERE TO STAY—KT and Mark will lend their unique vocal and pianistic interpretations to such classic tunes as “Of Thee I Sing,” “Do It Again!,” “I’ll Build A Stairway to Paradise,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not For Me” and “Who Cares.” Chicago jazz pianist Jon Weber will make a special guest appearance. Shows are Tuesday through Thursday at 8:30 and Friday and Saturday at 8:30 and 11:00, with a $50 cover charge per person plus either a $30 food and beverage minimum or a $60 prix fixe menu.
