MARK WILLIAM: BACK WITH A BEAT
AT THE LEGENDARY WOODSTOCK PLAYHOUSE

 

Mark William hits the stage like a lightning bolt! Putting his own unique, youthful spin on golden age crooner styling, Mark performs a collection of timeless tunes from Broadway and The Great American Songbook, including such iconic songs as On A Clear Day, The Girl From Ipanema, and Over the Rainbow. With his glossy approach, he glides from Jule Styne to Peter Allen to Kander & Ebb with charismatic ease and a spring in his step. He hypnotizes with a set of enduring classics, filtered through Mark’s youthful perspective and talent set. The show is distinctly new-age romantic, yet still evocative of golden-age cinematic glamour.

 

Mark is the winner of two Broadway World awards: Best Debut Act, and Best Independent Recording for his critically-acclaimed album, Mark William: Come Croon With Me, released by Yellow Sound Label. The recording was hailed as the “Album Of The Year” by Peter Filichia (Broadway Radio) and can be enjoyed wherever you stream music. Mark William recently made his triumphant debut at Michael Feinstein’s brand new venue at The Hotel Carmichael in Carmel, Indiana. Just weeks ago Mark returned to his New York City home base The Green Room 42 playing to a sold out crowd and standing ovations. On Saturday October 2nd, he had the honor of singing God Bless America at Yankee Stadium. Look for Mark’s spring 2022 concert tour which will take him from coast to coast. 


About Mark William:

A native of Toledo, OH, Mark William grew up in a house full of music. His mother, Teresa, is a celebrated pianist and music teacher, and she instilled that love of music in her son. Both she and Mark’s father, William, supported and provided for every endeavor that Mark pursued, including school musicals, dance, voice, and trumpet recitals, as well as touring Europe as an Ohio Youth Ambassador of Music. They taught Mark that, with faith, commitment, and determination, he could achieve anything. Mark continued his studies at Ohio Northern University, graduating with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and a Bachelor of Communications in Musical Theatre. It was a combination of the training he received at ONU plus the professional theatre jobs he worked each summer and the American Theatre Wing’s SpringboardNYC program that convinced Mark to take the plunge and pursue a career in entertainment in New York City.


At his numerous sold-out New York engagements, both critics and audiences alike have been over the moon for Mark William. Theater Pizzazz said, “He took my breath away with every note and nuance. Whatever that ‘it’ is, he’s got IT!” and Times Square Chronicles calls him “The newest star rising in the heavens of cabaret and musical theatre.” Deb Miller of DC Metro Arts raved, “Dazzling! A perfect synthesis of his own youth with the era he admires - A triple threat, indeed.” Broadway legend Chita Rivera said of Mark, “WOW! What a voice! He has got it all!” And Lynn Ahrens, the Tony-winning lyricist of ‘Ragtime’ calls him “Baby Sinatra.”


Mark has consistently been named one of the top ten cabaret acts by both Theater Pizzazz and Times Square Chronicles, and rang in 2019 headlining New Year’s Eve at New York’s famed McKittrick Hotel. His performance at the 30th New York Cabaret Convention inspired an uproarious ovation from the crowd.  He has appeared around the world in such shows as My Fair Lady, Mary Poppins, Mame with Leslie Uggams, and Jerry’s Girls with Susan Anton. Recently, he was featured in the U.S. premiere of the newly revised Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein at The Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia. Prior to the pandemic, Mark debuted his act in the luxury cruise market, wowing audiences from around the world. Mark William: Back With A Beat is directed by Preston and Richard Ridge with arrangements and musical direction by renowned composer Clint Edwards.
