From February 21 through February 25, KT Sullivan brought her cabaret act, Rhyme, Women and Song to the Royal Room at the Colony in Palm Beach Florida. BroadwayWorld was on hand, and brings you photo coverage below!
The spark for "Rhyme, Women & Song" began with KT's acclaimed salute to one of Broadway's greatest lyricists, Dorothy Fields. Now, KT expands her vision to display the work of Dorothy's peers and heirs who have continued to enrich the Great American Songbook. To the inimitable Dorothy's "Sunny Side of the Street" and "The Way You Look Tonight," she adds
Carole King's "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You." Also included are Edna Pinkard's "Kitchen Man," a spicy song from the 1920's made famous by Bessie Smith, and Carolyn Leigh's "The Best is Yet to Come," with music by Cy Coleman, that became Frank Sinatra's signature piece. From Mary Rodgers comes "The Boy From.....," a clever parody of "The Girl from Ipanema," with music by Stephen Sondheim, written for "The Mad Show."
KT Sullivan's Broadway shows include George Abbott's "Broadway," "Threepenny Opera" with Sting and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." She appeared in the national company of "Annie Get Your Gun," in the workshop of "Easter Parade" with Tommy Tune, and received Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Award nominations. She received a MAC Award (Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs) for "American Rhapsody: George Gershwin to the World" and most recently the prestigious Mabel Mercer Award. Regionally, she has appeared at the Old Globe Theatre, the Hartford Stage Company, Municipal Opera in St. Louis and Goodspeed Opera House. Recent local appearances include Carnegie Hall with Michael Feinstein and Neue Gallerie in two bi-lingual shows: a salute to Greta Keller (who opened the Oak Room in 1939) and the tour de force "Vienna to Weimar." Among her many CDs is "Swell Party...R.s.v.p. Cole Porter."
