Mendacity and half-truths abound in the new, critically acclaimed musical solo work from internationally renowned pianist-singer, Mark Nadler. The Old Razzle Dazzle: An Evening of Lies, Lying and Liars plays at the Laurie Beechman Theatre this fall on Wednesdays, Sept. 25th and Oct. 23rd at 7pm, and Oct. 30th at 9:30pm. PLEASE NOTE: The final show is scheduled at 9:30pm.

The Old Razzle Dazzle: An Evening of Lies, Lying and Liars is a rich collection of music, carefully chosen by much-honored showman Nadler, as a playful reflection on the tenor of our times. Throughout the repertoire and commentary, Mark explores lying from every angle, explaining at the start that everything he says will be a lie - or will it?

Songs – including Dave Frishberg’s “Blizzard of Lies,” celebrating classic white lies, to the lies that lovers tell, as in Murray Grand and Elisse Boyd’s ”Guess Who I Saw Today My Dear” to Friedrich Hollander’s “Münchhausen” and several classic favorites for kids in which the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus and the Stork make appearances – illustrate, without judgement, this unavoidable part of human nature. Mark’s performance builds to a dramatic conclusion with a tour de force singing, piano-playing and tap-dancing version of Kander and Ebb’s “Razzle Dazzle” that must be seen to be believed. The dance was choreographed by Germaine Salsberg.

Mark Nadler has created many award-winning shows and has appeared at Lincoln Center, on and off-Broadway, on PBS and around the world in such company as Marvin Hamlisch, KT Sullivan, Martin Short and many other show business luminaries.

The Laurie Beechman Theatre is in the rear and downstairs at the West Bank Cafe. It is a welcoming space that has excellent food and cocktails as well as great service, home to the comedy of Joan Rivers' for years, including her final perfomance.
