Spotlight on Success: How Icons of the Stage Are Stealing the Show Online
Thursday, April 29, we’re welcoming Daniel Nardicio and Kimberly Faye Greenberg to Spotlight on Success. If you don’t know, Daniel smashed records in one night with his A Love Letter to Liza, and Kimberly has been hitting the virtual boards most nights with her one-woman Fanny Brice show.
This 50-minute in-depth conversation promises to be equal parts insightful, interesting and iconic.
More on our Guests:
Daniel Nardicio is the producer of seminal events and concerts including his pairing of Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming on Fire Island and New York’s Town Hall, followed by Carol Channing and Justin Vivian Bond.

Nardicio has worked with icons of arts and letters, including John Waters, Lady Gaga, Margaret Cho, Lynda Carter, Peaches, Bridget Everett, Vivian Reed and Christine Ebersole. Of Nardicio The New York Times quipped: “an impressively sculptured torso and an affable air of old-time show business razzmatazz.” His biggest achievement is his dog Beauregard, who can often be found backstage at shows. In 2017 he co-founded Club Cumming with actor Alan Cumming. His newest venture coming in October is part nightclub, part podcast station and part virtual TV studio with his longtime associates Sam Benedict and Taylor Shubert.
