COLE PORTER with Dr. Kolb
Wednesday June 14, 2017
There was a time when Broadway musicals were elegant, witty and sophisticated, qualities that reached their zenith in the works of Cole Porter. Here was a composer/lyricist who wrote infectious tunes and clever rhymes to jazz-age stories, infusing them all with a certain naughtiness that never disappointed. His work included Gay Divorce, Anything Goes, Jubilee, Red, Hot and Blue!, Leave It To Me, Dubarry Was a Lady, Kiss Me, Kate, and Can-Can. And to top it off, the list of performers who introduced such classic songs as Begin the Beguine, I Get a Kick Out Of You, My Heart Belongs to Daddy, and Night and Day reads like a Who’s Who of the Broadway Theatre—Mary Martin, Ethel Merman, Fred Astaire, Alfred Drake, and Bert Lahr.
