Cole Porter and the Great Depression

January 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$30 – $35
Isn’t it ironic that the worst economic period in America’s history was the career high point of our most elegant songwriter, Cole Porter? Between the stock market crash in 1929 and Pearl Harbor in 1941, Porter wrote the scores for twelve shows and four films, took an around-the-world cruise,  and was permanently injured in a horseback riding accident. With images and song, Troy wends his way through this packed period in Porter’s life, playing at least one song from each of the 16 works referenced above and noting what was going on simultaneously in the outside world. Join us for this lively and informative tour of Porter’s life and music! This event is also available virtually.
