Musical Theatre Guild presents a staged concert version of HIGH SOCIETY.
Music and Lyrics: Cole Porter
Book: Arthur Kopit
Based on Philip Barry’s 1939 stage comedy, “The Philadelphia Story” and subsequent 1956 musical film adaptation, “High Society”.
In 1956, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and the stunning Grace Kelly brought this musical adaptation of Philip Barry’s “The Philadelphia Story” to life on the silver screen. It featured a sparkling score by musical master Cole Porter. This 1998 Broadway adaptation takes Porter even further by pouring more of his classic tunes into the party punchbowl than you can sing in one night. But we will! The plot centers on pretentious socialite Tracy Samantha Lord, planning to wed an equally pretentious executive, when her ex-husband arrives to disrupt the proceedings. We invite you to this non-stop romp of mismatched romances and great Cole Porter songs — many of which were featured in the 1956 movie — including “Well, Did You Evah?” and “'What a Swell Party This Is!”
This performance is a staged concert version.
