Following last season’s tremendous Evening with Irving Berlin, Fred Barton and his 14-piece Orchestra, headlined by a cast of Broadway’s best, will present a collection of Cole Porter’s most distinctive showstoppers. From Broadway to Hollywood, memorable numbers such as "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "Too Darn Hot," "I’ve Got You Under My Skin," "Night And Day," and "Let’s Do It" will be featured alongside hidden gems and numbers that haven’t been heard with Broadway-style orchestration since their debuts up to 90 years ago.  

 

The cast includes Tony Award-winner Beth Leavel (Baby, It’s You, Mamma Mia!, 42nd Street); Karen Murphy (A Little Night Music, Titanic, Les Miserables); John Bolton (Dames At Sea, Curtains, Spamalot); Sean McGibbon (Million Dollar Quartet, The Buddy Holly Story); Lisa Howard (It Shoulda Been YouThe 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee); Damon Kirsche (On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, Strike Up The Band, Paradise Lost); Jesse Luttrell (Bawdy, Meet Me In St. Louis); and Paula Leggett Chase (On The Twentieth Century, Bye Bye Birdie, Curtains, The Sound of Music live NBC broadcast). Scott Thompson directs and choreographs, incorporating his sensational Broadway dancers.

 

This evening promises to be a song and dance extravaganza in celebration of one of the all-time greatest American songwriters!
