New York Cabaret star KT Sullivan will bring her acclaimed show, “Rhyme, Women and Song” to the Hilton Waikoloa’s new Kona Tap Room on Saturday, Feb. 11.

The performance is a benefit for the Visitor Aloha Society of Hawai’i (VASH) Hawai’i Island.

Sullivan was named artistic director of The Mabel Mercer Foundation in 2012, starred in the Broadway revival of Gentleman Prefer Blondes and headlined for almost two decades in The Oak Room at The Algonquin Hotel.

Accompanied by pianist Jon Weber, KT will bring the Big Apple to the Big Island.

Ticket price of $65 includes pūpū, free self-parking, a silent auction and a no host bar.


“One of the pleasures of cabaret reviewing over the long haul has been to observe the evolution of KT Sullivan from an effervescent musical comedian into the increasingly fearless and complex actor she is today,” Stephen Holden of the New York Times said of KT. “Her new show, which opened at the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel last week is called ‘Rhyme, ‘Women and Song, but it might as just well be titled ‘The Seven Ages of Woman,’ for all the musical and emotional territory she covers… In the end, Ms. Sullivan’s natural ebullience and perfect comic timing transport you to a blissful plateau.”


Doors open at 5:30; the show starts at 6:30 p.m.

All proceeds benefit VASH Hawai’i Island, whose mission is to share aloha with visitors affected by adversity.

Tickets can be purchased online.
