Red Hot and Cole
20th - 25th October 2004 - The Little Theatre, Torquay
Red Hot and Cole bubbles with songs that have become international standards. Porter's rise to superstardom is traced throughout the show by way of delightful party repartee and revealing anecdotes from his nearest and dearest. Diving into Mr Porter's "De-Lovely" songwriting style, this tuneful show depicts the brilliance that characterises it as well as the depth from which his inspiration came. A few rather unknown musical and lyrical gems are the cherry on top of this scrumptious Porter sundae.
