Marc Kudisch
What Makes Me Tick

Triple Tony-nominated actor Marc Kudisch is one of Broadway’s most beloved baritones, most recently garnering critical acclaim for his portrayal of the minster in Lincoln Center's A Minister's Wife in the spring of 2010.

Marc received his third Tony and fourth Drama Desk Award nominations for creating the role of Franklin Hart in the Dolly Parton Broadway musical 9 to 5.  He had previously been nominated for his first Tony Award for the role of Trevor Graydon in Thoroughly Modern Millie (Drama Desk and Outer Critics nominations too), and then for Baron Bomburst in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (Outer Critics nomination as well).

Other Broadway roles include The Proprietor in Assassins (Drama Desk nomination), Jeff Moss in Bells Are Ringing, Jackie in the Public Theatre's production of The Wild Party, Chauvelin in the 3rd incarnation of The Scarlet Pimpernel, George Kittredge in High Society, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Reuben in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  Off-Broadway credits are too numerous to mention. Nationally, Marc was seen as Conrad Birdie in Bye Bye Birdie, co-starring Tommy Tune and Ann Reinking.

Marc's concert appearances include Portland Symphony, Ravinia Festival, and the Philadelphia Philharmonic, as well as at the popular Broadway By the Year concert series at Town Hall in New York City, where Marc has been a constant performer and director for over 5 years. Marc's television and film credits include Val in Break-In for the Lifetime network, Conrad Birdie in Bye Bye Birdie for ABC Television, guest appearances on Sex in the City and David Letterman, and recurring roles on All My Children and Loving.

“What Makes Me Tick” is Marc’s latest concert which debuted to rave reviews at NYC’s Feinsteins at the Regency during the summer of 2011.  The show, with Marc and his 4-piece band, features popular selections from Broadway, country, folk, fusion and jazz, all rolled up into one big jam fest. Supported by a wide variety of tangy arrangements and a beautifully written monologue, Marc leads the audience through his discovery of theater, vocal influences and a sampling of his journey to-date. Describing the show in his own words, Marc says, “As an actor, it’s a constant job to understand your character’s MOTIVE for DOING…. But how often do we pay that kind of attention to ourselves? This concert is just that; a musical conversation of how I got here and why I’m driven to be here; the inner workings of What Makes Me Tick…”
