Red, Hot and Cole

The Music of Cole Porter

A scintillating mixture of biography and song, Red Hot & Cole celebrates the great American songwriter who brought style, elegance and sophistication to the stages and soundstages of Broadway and Hollywood, delighting the world with his devilishly clever rhymes, fresh and unexpected melodies and sassy, sexy sensibility. It’s a champagne tribute to a glittering age gone by… and the man and talent who was Cole Porter.

This two-act revue traces Cole’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. Featuring 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,” Red Hot & Cole bubbles with songs that have become international standards.
