THE NEW ZEALAND PREMIERE SEASON
GEORGIA JAMIESON EMMS
In this tour-de-force one-woman show, Linda Lee Thomas (Mrs. Cole Porter), candidly recounts, through song and story, her life’s journey with Cole Porter. Though Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamour-filled life. With innovative arrangements, the timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter weave through the compelling narrative of Love, Linda, examining the darker sides of their life, while also celebrating the deep love that blossomed through their unconventional relationship.
Robert Kimball, historian and author of "The Complete Lyrics of Cole Porter" called it "one of the best Cole Porter shows ever."
