Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités


“A Swell Party” started life in London in 1991 at the Vaudeville Theatre with Angela Richards, David Kerman, Anne Wood and Martin Smith. Nickolas Grace, the only man alive who actually looks like Cole Porter, played the composer-lyricist. Here it is now Simon Green, who is tall and looks nothing like Cole, who plays the Porter part, narrating the life and times of one of the twentieth-century’s greatest and most prolific songwriters who stands beside Irving Berlin, George & Ira Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart as the best that the Great American Songbook had to offer in the glorious heyday of popular song and music-theatre, the period from the mid-1920s to the early 1950s.
