Is he our best Cole Porter interpreter? You betcha. Ross has been singing the foremost songwriting sophisticate’s phenomenal output for some time now, and the result is still as fresh and tangy as the day the Waldorf Towers resident penned them. This show’s dubbed “Ridin’ High: Cole Porter on Broadway,” and that means many of the ditties Ethel Merman introduced and, if we’re lucky, the magnificent “Begin the Beguine” that June Knight sang first in Jubilee. Expect the Merman items to be belted by truly special guest Klea Blackhurst.
