Mark William BIO

Mark William won the 2019 BroadwayWorld Cabaret Awards for Best Debut Show and Best Independent Recording. Putting his own unique, youthful spin on classic crooner styling, Mark glides from Jerry Herman to Peter Allen to ‪‪Burt Bacharach‬‬ with charismatic ease and a spring in his step. Both critics and audiences alike are over the moon for Mark William. Theatre Pizzazz said “He took my breath away with every note and nuance. Whatever that ‘it’ is, he’s got IT!” and Times Square Chronicles called him “ The newest star rising in the heavens of cabaret and musical theatre.” Broadway legend Chita Rivera said of Mark, “WOW! What a voice!” and John Lloyd Young, the original, Tony-winning ‪Frankie Valli‬ in ‪Jersey Boys‬, says he is “Golden-Age Hollywood Reborn”. Mark recently returned from the Walnut Street Theatre where he played Bertram Batram in Young Frankenstein, and 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.
