Poster RED HOT & COLE - 1998

Red Hot & Cole celebrates the life of one of the great songwriting masters of this century. This two-act revue traces Cole Porter's career from Indiana to the world stages of New York, London, Paris and Venice, through his marriage, his friendships with the greats of his age and the tragic riding accident that crippled him in mid-career, physically, but not artistically.

The show features over 25 Cole Porter standards, including "Night And Day", "I Love Paris", "Anything Goes", "Let's Do It", "Miss Otis Regrets", "Just One Of Those Things", "In The Still Of The Night" and "My Heart Belongs To Daddy".
