"Just Do It!
The above is Mark Cotter’s mantra and as you will see from this blog, he walks the talk and talks the talk. Mark is returning to New York after an absence of seventeen years!
What would the perfect day look like for Mark Cotter?
Mark tells me he has been having a lot of them lately. The perfect day is when he has something to rehearse.
We conducted this interview over the phone on Tuesday morning at nine AM. He told me the day before had been a perfect day. It was a gorgeous day here in New York. It was a perfect Autumn New York sweater day. He was able to go to a rehearsal studio and spend hours with his musical director for his upcoming show, Christian Duhamel, and that night we had a wonderful time at Jim Brochu’s show.
Why this new show, Welcome Back, Cotter, and why at this time? Mark has been away from New York. He has been working a lot but not in New York. He hasn’t done anything in New York for a long time and he has desired to do so. Living up to his mantra Just Do It!, here we are!! He took a chunk out of his schedule to make this happen. The show title is, obviously, a play on the sitcom,Welcome Back, Kotter, which was one of my guilty pleasures in the ‘70s.That is Kotter with a “K”, He is Kotter with a “C”…Cue song!
I hope that ALL of my readers within the tri-state area will help me celebrate this great artist. I will be there on the 25th and I would love YOU to join me! Mark has structured the show in a way to have something for
everyone. Mark tells me that he is revisiting “old school cabaret” with this show. Each song will be a three act play in this show."
