Stephen Holden on Mark Nadler & KT Sullivan

The NYTimes on the duo’s Gershwin salute at the Oak Room: “A decade ago Ms. Sullivan and Mr. Nadler performed another, more conventional (and uneven) Gershwin tribute, “American Rhapsody,” that ran off Broadway for nine months. In the 10 years since, they have grown exponentially in confidence and mutual understanding. The show’s astute musical pairings include “Who Cares?” with “They All Laughed”; “Sweet and Lowdown” with “Shall We Dance?”; and “’S Wonderful” wound around excerpts from “Rhapsody in Blue.” Their rendition of “How Long Has This Been Going On?,” the Gershwin ode to delirious, nonplatonic kissing, is one of the few I’ve heard that emphasizes what the song is really about.”
