Cole Porter's 'The Ambassador Revue'
Hello, hello, what’s this? Or better yet, Allo, allo, qu’est ce que c’est? Why, it’s a rediscovered work Cole Porter wrote in 1928 and really called “La Revue des Ambassadeurs.” It’s about the Paris the songwriter loved from a young age and includes few songs familiar these days, like "In a Moorish Garden.” In the cast then? The Gershwin sister Frances. In the cast now? Amy Burton, Anita Gillette, Jason Graae, Ted Levy, Catherine Russell and Tom Wopat. Leading the pack? Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks. No Cole soul can afford to miss it.
