Hailed by the New York Times as “the suavest of all mall cabaret performers,” Steve Ross, dubbed the “Crown Prince of New York Cabaret” takes his audience on a musical and anecdotal journey through the songs of this most sophisticated composer Cole Porter. From Porter’s early successes in the Twenties (“I’m In Love Again,” “You Do Something To Me,” “Let’s Do It”) through his glory years in the Thirties (“It’s D’Lovely,” “In the Still of the Night”), the Forties (noted for his masterpiece Kiss Me Kate), and his later songs from the Fifties (“I Love Paris,” “C’est Magnifique” and “It’s All Right With Me”). There will also be songs by his contemporaries (and friends) the Gershwins, Jerome Kern, and Rodgers & Hart as well as Transatlantic hits from the pens and worlds of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Friedrich Hollander and Kurt Weill. The show concludes tribute to the great Fred Astaire, for whom Porter wrote one of his undying classics, “Night and Day.”
