Mark William, an incredibly talented young singer and dancer who frequently appears on New York stages, will be performing in the beautiful shul on 47th Street. The benefit will take place on Monday, Novemer 18, 2019 from 7:30pm-10:00pm in their very own recently renovated sanctuary located at 339 West 47th Street, NYC.

Putting his own unique, youthful spin on golden age crooner styling, Williams performs a collection of classic tunes from Broadway and The Great American Songbook. With his glossy approach, he glides from Jerry Herman to Peter Allen to ‪Henry Mancini‬ with charismatic ease and a spring in his step. Both critics and audiences alike are over the moon for Mark William.

“Mark William is the epitome of panache, adding his own brand of pizzazz. Whatever that ‘it’ is, he’s got IT!”

Theatre Pizzazz

“The newest star rising in the heavens of cabaret and musical theatre.”
