National treasures Bill Cosby and Chita Rivera join internationally acclaimed virtuoso Mark Nadler for a one-night-only gala evening of comedy and musical entertainment. The first act of this 90-minute evening has Mr. Nadler and Ms. Rivera showcasing their thrilling musical acts with Bill Cosby holding forth for all of Act II. If you fell in love with The Cosby Show, one of the biggest hits in television history, this is a chance to reconnect with the hilarity of this master storyteller. A performer, author, television producer, educator and musician, Cosby is a nationally recognized advocate for families and children.

A night of laughter, singing and dancing, the audience will be entertained by the best while supporting Art Start on the organization’s 20th anniversary. Mr. Nadler’s personal interpretation of the American Songbook brings new life to cherished standards, Ms. Rivera dazzles with her endless energy and Broadway brass. 100% of the proceeds of this event go to Art Start bringing the arts to New York’s at-risk and homeless children. Nadler’s dedication to Art Start is the inspiration behind assembling this star-studded cast.
