Mark Nadler

visitors Broadway gets the AMP treatment when singer-pianist-tapper-comedian Mark Nadler hits town for the CD release of Runnin’ Wild: Songs and Scandals of the Roaring 20’s, his guidebook through the wildest decade of the 20th Century.

This guy gots props: tons of awards, experience not just on Broadway but on the road as well, and a reputation for entertaining with nostalgia, cleverness and fun. Mark is celebrating the gin-soaked album release of Runnin’ Wild at this very show—which can only mean more excess! More scandal! More cocktails! Friday, May 29, 2015, 9:00 PM – 9:30 PM.

Ramadan: The Islamic Month of Fasting

Days of Commemoration Ramadan, the month of fasting, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is holy because it was during this month that the Holy Quran (Koran) was revealed.

It is a time for feeling a common bond with the poor and needy, and is a time of piety and prayer. It begins on the Islamic lunar calendar date Ramadan 1, 1429.
