COLE PORTER (AND BEYOND)
Steve Ross takes his audience on a musical and anecdotal journey through the songs of this most sophisticated composer – from his early successes in the Twenties (I’m In Love Again, You Do Something To Me, Let’s Do It ) through his glory years in the Thirties ( It’s D’Lovely, In the Still of the songs by Night ), the Forties (noted for his masterpiece Kiss Me Kate ), and his later songs from the Fifties ( Love Paris, C’est Magnifique and It’s All Right With Me ). Also in the show will be songs by his contemporaries the Gershwins, Jerome Kern, and Rodgers & Hart as well as Transatlantic hits from the pens and worlds of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Friedrich Hollander Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour and Kurt Weill. The show concludes with a tribute to the great Fred Astaire, for whom Porter wrote one of his undying classics, Night and Day.
Steve’s special guest for the evening will be Chicago’s own Joan Curto.
