Considered one of the foremost Cabaret artists in the world, Broadway veteran KT Sullivan is described as “one of the most sensual performers in cabaret; she literally is a treat for all the senses. Her shimmering soprano (itself a rarity in a genre largely populated by altos and tenors) is a delight for the ears.”Join us as we welcome Ms. KT Sullivan home for an unforgettable evening of song!
“One of the pleasures of cabaret reviewing over the long haul has been to observe the evolution of KT Sullivan from an effervescent musical comedian into the increasingly fearless and complex singing character actor she is today.”
Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Over the past 40 years, Jimmy Webb’s accomplishments as a composer, arranger, songwriter, and performer have made him a truly iconic figure in the music world. Born in Elk City, Oklahoma, Jimmy Webb is the only artist ever to receive Grammy awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration. Jimmy’s name can be found on a staggering number of songwriter halls of fame, lifetime achievement awards, and “best singles of all time” lists. His songs, however, speak for themselves: “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” and “MacArthur Park,” to name just a few.
“He is interested in the work of the great masters from any era, and certainly, Jimmy Webb is a master of this era, of today.” Michael Feinstein
