BMC Night Beat "A Swell Party with Cole Porter "
"A new musical comedy revue with the songs of Cole Porter," with local favorites, Martha Benedict, Martin Bray, Ben Buchanan, Sherrie Kahn and Megann Schmidt performing more than 30 of Cole Porter's timeless songs, with music direction by Scott Henderson.
It is 1947 and society hostess, Elsa Maxwell, is throwing a grand party for Cole Porter. In a surprise reunion, two young caterers, Harry and Fern, rekindle the spark of romance. But Fern has another party game on her mind: Find a rich man to marry. She doesn't know Harry has some secrets of his own. Through the rich catalog of Cole Porter's wry, romantic, and downright hysterical songs, Harry and Fern discover love can overcome even the most opulent of temptations.
Porter's songs, written for movies and shows from 1927 to 1956, includes favorites like You're the Top, You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To, Friendship, Let's Do It, Let's Misbehave, Be A Clown, Anything Goes, My Heart Belongs to Daddy, I've Got You Under My Skin, I Get a Kick Out of You, Night and Day, Begin the Beguine, Just One of Those Things, and many more rarer finds.
