THE DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ENTIRE WORLD AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF COLE PORTER
Off-Broadway: York Theatre at Saint Peter's
Book by Ben Bagley
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Directed by Pamela Hunt
Cast includes: Danny Gardner, Lauren Molina, Diane Phelan, and Lee Roy Reams
This irreverent musical journey travels the globe through an array of gems from the vast Porter canon, both familiar and forgotten. The "world" under scrutiny is that between 1919 and 1945 when, indeed, some considerable declining and falling went on. Unfortunately (but fortunately for us), it's just as relevant now as it was over fifty years ago. As Porter wrote,"times have changed, and we've often rewound the clock"-- and here we are doing it again.
