Love, Linda: The Life of Mrs Cole Porter
A one-act theatrical and musical show featuring some of Cole Porter’s best loved songs including Night & Day, In The Still of The Night, Love For Sale, and Let’s Do It.
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.
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.
“Love, Linda” was written by New York-based jazz vocalist Stevie Holland in collaboration with Gary William Friedman.
Singer and producer Georgia Jamieson Emms, best known for her work on the classical stage, will step into the role of Linda, accompanied by Wellington-based jazz musicians Ayrton Foote (piano), Thomas Moore (double bass) and Sebastian Macaulay (drums).
