His recent off-Broadway hit, I’m a Stranger Here Myself, has been honored with the 2013 Nightlife Award and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and two Broadway World Awards.

Cole Porter did most of his writing late at night. Mark Nadler “...a fire­breathing monster of uncontrollable, attention seeking talent emphasizing heart as well as heat” (Stephen Holden, The New York Times, April 26, 2016) explores the wit, the passion the romance and the randiness of Cole Porter’s late night musings.

Looking deeply into Porter’s various inspirations Nadler goes from the famous list songs such as “Let’s Do It”, “You’re the Top” and “Can­Can” to love song such as “In the Still of the Night”, “Begin the Beguine” and “Night and Day”.

"a swell party this is - with a show that is exquisitely personal, almost a monologue with songs interwoven, that amounts to an attempt to get under Porter’s actual skin. What set the songwriter’s own heart beat-beat-beating? Mr. Nadler projects his own educated opinion on that score, illustrated with the actual songs, and even Porter’s own letters to the loves he had to seclude in the shadows in that not always enlightened era.”
—Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal

"An exhilarating evening. Nadler gives Porter's light and witty creations vibrant arrangements and immensely entertaining performances. Sprinkled amid the merriment, ballads are given sensitive, touching, even haunting interpretations, and illuminating the musical numbers is Nadler's uncommonly perceptive analysis of Porter and his songs. It has all been put together with a canny sense of both artistry and showmanship. This is one of Nadler's best shows…ever.”
