Heads or Tails
Heads it's Kenneth. Tails it's Mary. How the show turns out is up to you! Join us for a game of musical theatre chance as we let Lady Luck choose the songs with the toss of a coin! Mary McNulty & Kenneth Gartman are together again for the first time making their Cabaret Duo Debut in this fast paced romp exploring ups & downs, ins & outs and bits & bobs. Includes (possibly) songs by Gershwin, Porter, Lehrer, Bernstein, Yeston, Sondheim, Larson, Friedman, Goldrich & Heisler, Pink and Lizzo...but I wouldn't bet on it! *No two shows are the same!

"Mary McNulty adds a brassy coloratura to excellent instincts as a comedienne ...remarkably poignant!"
"The immensely talented Kenneth Gartman...has the vocal power of a Broadway star with the nuance of a cabaret singer who knows how to connect with an audience in a smaller venue."
"She [Mary McNulty] has one of the most beautiful voices heard on PPAC stage in recent memory, made even more impressive by how effortless it seems ... McNulty seems to need only open her mouth and glorious music comes from her soul."
“(Kenneth Gartman) creates a delightful evening that impacts the emotions and intellect.” “Listening to (Kenneth Gartman) on-stage…is pure pleasure.”
