Kudisch will appear in The Thing About Men, which features music by Jimmy Roberts with a book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro. In an interview for Wayman Wong’s May 1 “The Leading Men” column, Kudisch, who will also star in the upcoming City Center Encores! presentation of No Strings, confirmed that he will appear in the new Off-Broadway musical, explaining, “It’s a great story about a successful account exec with a beautiful wife and two kids, and he’s screwing his secretary on the side. One day his wife tells him she’s been seeing someone too, so he decides to track down the [guy] who’s been screwing his wife and become his roommate. It’s based on a German film called ‘Men.’”

Kudisch adds, "Now that I've done Trevor and Carl-Magnus [in A Little Night Music], it's gonna be very easy for people to type[cast] me, so I've got to shake things up. Which is why I'm looking forward to this show."

A workshop of The Thing About Men was held in December, which also featured Kudisch (Thoroughly Modern Millie) as well as Christopher Sieber (Into The Woods), Michele Pawk (Hollywood Arms), Jennifer Simard (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) and Daniel Reichard (Radiant Baby).

Mark Kudisch received Tony, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk nominations for his performance in Thoroughly Modern Millie, the Tony-winning musical that plays the Marquis Theatre. He has also appeared on Broadway in Bells Are Ringing, The Wild Party, The Scarlet Pimpernel, High Society, Beauty and the Beast and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He recently took part in the City Opera mounting of A Little Night Music, and his screen credits include “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Sex and the City” and “Loving.”
