For this show, the SSC have stretched their skills to the limit: it is not every actor who can sing! But the cast really gave their best - the fast pace meant that they really needed a lot of energy! - the pianist delivered a seamless performance (she played every single song!), and it was a truly lovely evening full of charm and wit.
I usually avoid musicals like the plague, but this was Noel Coward, and yes, there were loads of songs, but the lyrics were so wonderfully clever, and the actors were really good, so I was fine. No, really!
I own a copy of the first edition (1976, Jonathan Cape) of Cole Lesley's biography of Noel Coward: "The Life of Noel Coward".
I still haven't read it, shame on me!
It contains all the songs and spoken sections of the show, and is lavishly illustrated with black and white pictures, sketches, paintings... It's a wonderful volume indeed!
