A Swell Party

A celebration of the life and work of Cole Porter

Have you heard? It’s in the stars
Next July we collide with Mars.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party, a swell party
A swelligant, elegant party this is!

An elegant cabaret-style tribute to the life of Cole Porter, one of the greatest composers and lyricists of the 20th century. Through words and music, A Swell Party celebrates the vibrant image of sophistication and glamour that Cole represented for so long to so many people.

First staged at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre in 1991, A Swell Party recreates the spirit of the songwriter and includes classic songs such as ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’, ‘Night and Day’ and ‘Brush Up Your Shakespeare’, from popular shows including High Society, Kiss Me Kate and Anything Goes.

You’re invited to join the party to marvel at Cole’s effervescent witty lyrics, occasional ribald humour, consummate song writing and catchy melodies live onstage. Cole Porter, you’re the top!
