THE SONGS AND LETTERS OF Noël Coward
in the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre
An Entertainment Devised by Barry Day
Directed by Charlotte Moore
Starring Steve Ross and KT Sullivan
“KT Sullivan is as vocally, comically and theatrically assured as contemporary performers get.” – The New Yorker
Steve Ross is “the suavest of all male cabaret performers.” – The New York Times
Get to know the life and times of one of the 20th century’s most dynamic creative icons – Noël Coward – through this intimate performance in which Steve Ross and KT Sullivan transform into some of the many characters that made up Coward’s unique life…Gertrude Lawrence, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Elaine Stritch, Lynn Fontanne, Virginia Woolf, Edna Ferber, the Queen Mother, and, of course, The Master himself, Noël Coward.
Through Coward’s songs, stories, and personal letters, cabaret legends Steve Ross and KT Sullivan will summon up timeless memories of an era that may be gone, but is never to be forgotten.
This is the New York Premiere of Love, Noël: The Letters and Songs of Noël Coward, an original entertainment devised by Barry Day.
