Love, Linda – January 17-27,2019
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter

Arrangements and Additional Music by Gary William Friedman


“Love, Linda” the one woman musical tour de force about the life of Mrs. Cole Porter runs January 17th through January 27th at the Marcelle Theater in The Grand Center Arts District.

Linda Lee Thomas was the Southern beauty who married and was the driving force behind legendary song writer Cole Porter at the dawn of the roaring twenties. Though Cole Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamour-filled life.

With innovative jazz arrangements, the timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter weave through “Love, Linda” examining the darker sides of their life, while also celebrating the deep love that blossomed through their unconventional relationship.

The score includes, “Night and Day”, “I Love Paris”, “In the Still of the Night” and “Love for Sale”.

Debby Lennon, the St. Louis Theater Circle Award winner for “Outstanding Actress In A Musical” and “Outstanding Actress In A Comedy” stars as Mrs. Cole Porter with Broadway veteran Ken Page directing!
