ISBN: 9780573681356

Devised by Benny Green and Alan Strachan

Here's a fresh musical about the King of Musicals, Cole Porter. Green and Strachan have cleverly put together most of Cole's hit tunes with a narration which tells the story of his life, from Yale to Paris to Manhattan to Broadway to Hollywood-- and, ultimately, back once again to Broadway.

Here's a fresh musical about the King of Musicals, Cole Porter. Green and Strachan have cleverly put together most of Cole's hit tunes with a narration which tells the story of his life, from Yale to Paris to Manhattan to Broadway to Hollywood-- and, ultimately, back once again to Broadway. Includes such Porter standards as "I Love Paris," "Take Me Back to Manhattan," "Love for Sale," "Night and Day," and "I Get a Kick Out of You." A London success, this delightful new show may be done very simply on an almost bare stage.
COLE was first produced at the Mermaid Theatre in London on July 2, 1974. It was directed by Alan Strachan and David Toguri.
