KT Sullivan was a regular headliner at the Oak Room of New York's Algonquin Hotel since 1992 until the venue closed and as well as for several years at the Neue Galerie's Sabarsky Café on Fifth Avenue and The Crazy Coq in London. Most recently, KT was a guest star on Garrison Keillor's Prarie Home Companion. She has been spotlighted frequently at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall and Lincoln Center and has also performed at Caramoor, Spoleto, The New York Historical Society, La Nouvelle Eve in Paris, Chichester in the U.K. and multiple times at the Adelaide Festival in Australia. KT's Broadway credits include Three Penny Opera with Sting, the play Broadway and the leading role in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Off-Broadway, she has appeared in Splendora, A My Name is Still Alice, and with Mark Nadler she wrote and starred Off-Broadway in American Rhapsody: George Gershwin to the World, receiving Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel nominations and winning the MAC Award for Best Musical Revue. Ms. Sullivan made her West End debut in her bi-lingual show, Vienna to Weimar, at London's Jermyn Street Theatre in 2004 and has returned yearly in performances ranging from Noel Coward to Comden & Green. KT has seven albums in worldwide distribution on the DRG label. Two new CDs have been recorded with Mr. Nadler, A Swell Party: RSVP Cole Porter and Always: The Love Story of Irving Berlin, which won the Nightlife Award for Best Musical Revue. KT's regional theatre credits are Hartford Stage, Missouri Rep, Muni Opera, Old Globe Theatre, Goodspeed Opera, Paper Mill Playhouse and The Great Lakes Theatre Festival while her TV includes Police Squad, Hardcastle & McCormick, Night Court, Remington Steel, Cabaret 13 with Michael Feinstein, and In Performance at the White House, with Mary Martin.

KT Sullivan is bringing "Colored Lights" a show that finds this dazzling singer at the zenith of her powers. Just listen to what she does to "Barbara Song" from The Three Penny Opera or "Who's that Woman?" from Follies. She makes each song a brilliant three-act play before launching into a cataclysmically funny rendition of Noel Coward's "World Weary" succeeded by a dazzling tour-de-force of "One Halloween/But Alive" from Applause. "Colored Lights" is cabaret at its glorious best!
