Love, Linda (3)

Details

“What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?”
– Cole Porter

Linda Lee Thomas was the Southern beauty who married and was a driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter at the dawn of the roaring twenties. Though Cole Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamour-filled life. With innovative jazz arrangements, the timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter weave through Love, Linda examining the darker sides of their life, while also celebrating the deep love that blossomed through their unconventional relationship. The score includes, Night and Day, I Love Paris, In the Still of the Night and Love for Sale.

This one-woman musical stars the incomparable Debby Lennon. Veteran Broadway and St Louis favorite Ken Page directs.

“One of the best Cole Porter shows ever.” Robert Kimball, author of “The Complete Lyrics of Cole Porter”
