Ed Sullivan from 1948 to 1971 hosted the most popular TV variety show of all time. Elvis, the Beatles, Topo Gigio, Nat Cole, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis all graced the state of what was to become New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater.
Through the magic of the newly launched medium of television, Ed entered our living rooms, our hearts and ultimately our minds and memories. Anyone growing up during that period of time remembers 8PM on Sunday night.
Mom, dad, sisters and brothers all gathered to watch the weekly parade of singers, dancers, comedians, jugglers, puppets, and dramatic readers whom Ed assembled.
As our annual fundraiser for The Cole Porter Society, we could think of a no more fun event than to recreate a tribute to the Ed Sullivan Show. Whether it be Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Jack Benny, George Burns or Rodney Dangerfield, we’re going to represent the wide array of talent you came to expect on Sunday nights. And what show would be complete without plate spinners, Broadway songs, Ed Sullivan himself and so many more, all whose acts will be represented in a 90-minute nonstop cavalcade of talent.
