A "swellegant" theatrical party spanning the life of the great and irrepressible wit, Cole Porter.

A scintillating mixture of biography and song, Red Hot & Cole celebrates the great American songwriter who brought style, elegance and sophistication to the stages and soundstages of Broadway and Hollywood, delighting the world with his devilishly clever rhymes, fresh and unexpected melodies and sassy, sexy sensibility. It's a champagne tribute to a glittering age gone by, and the man and talent who was Cole Porter.

This two-act revue traces Cole's career from Indiana to the world stages of New York, London, Paris and Venice, through his marriage, his friendships with the greats of his age and the tragic riding accident that crippled him in mid-career, physically, but not artistically. Featuring over 25 Cole Porter standards, including "Night And Day", "I Love Paris", "Anything Goes", "Let's Do It", "Miss Otis Regrets", "Just One Of Those Things", "In The Still Of The Night" and "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", Red Hot & Cole bubbles with songs that have become international standards.

Red Hot & Cole is a dream come true for actors and audiences alike. Packed with intriguing interactions between many famous faces, it goes above and beyond thoughtful exploration. Not only will audiences leave after the final curtain has fallen happy to have heard their favorite tunes, but also emotionally enthralled by the revealing experience.

The original production of Marry Me A Little was designed to take place on the set of a play already running at the theatre about single-occupancy hotels —hence the concept of two people living in separate apartments.
