The Songs and Letters of Noël Coward
A PERFORMANCE ON SCREEN
Written and Devised by Barry Day
Directed by Charlotte Moore
Filmed at The Players
Starring Steve Ross and KT Sullivan
“an intimate and authentic view of [Coward’s] charming and creative persona” – DC Metro Theatre Arts
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.
After the sold-out run of the Irish Rep World Premiere production of Love, Noël in the summer of 2019, Irish Repertory Theatre is delighted to present Love, Noël on-screen this summer.
