Mark Nadler

Broadway Hootenanny

Presented by Queensland Cabaret Festival, Brisbane Powerhouse and Theatremakers,

Mark Nadler’s Broadway Hootenanny began as a mad-cap weekly variety show at the New York City landmark theatrical restaurant, Sardi’s. A favourite event around the world, including a staple performance at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Theatremakers is proud to host Mark’s Brisbane debut.

Anything can happen at the Hootenanny, and it usually does. This is a show that is completely created according to the local guest stars the producer provides – always a one-of-a-kind event that is unique to that particular venue and the people who perform there. Throughout it all, Mark Nadler entertains in his inimitable fashion: singing, playing piano and tap dancing as well as keeping the audience in stitches with outrageous comedy.

Performances from Catherine Alcorn, Darren Percival and Lizzie Moore have been announced.
