‘Wonderful, exciting and funny’ ... John Chapman, Daily News 1946. Around The World was a huge unexpected surprise for the 1946 New York theatre season. Everyone was waiting for this Welles and Porter show. Orson Welles returned from Hollywood to Broadway as the writer, producer, director and star of this hilarious satire on the British based on the Jules Verne novel. The extra zing was his collaborator, Cole Porter.

Previous successful producions this year!

Noel Coward and Joyce Barbour from the original production of Words and Music.

Book, Music, LyricsNOEL COWARD
SUNDAYS – July 14, 21, 28 & August 4 at 3.30pm

'Mr Coward has never sharpened his quill better,' a critic remarked on Words And Music. Though his most successful revue, it has never been revived. At the height of his powers Coward wrote for this show many songs that would live on, including 'Mad About The Boy', with a different chorus for every class of girl, 'Mad Dogs And Englishmen', 'Let's Say Goodbye', 'Three White Feathers' and 'The Party's Over Now'. Coward satirizes and parodies at his very best.

Holly Golightly (1966)

Programme and poster for the original production of Holly Golightly

Music and LyricsBOB MERRILL
based on Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
SUNDAYS – September 8, 15 ,22 ,29 at 3.30pm

Although Breakfast At Tiffany’s, the heartbreaking novella by Truman Capote, became the classic romantic film with Audrey Hepburn, this legendary musical previewed on Broadway but never opened. This show was the long awaited event of the 1966 Broadway season. Abe Burrows (Guys And Dolls and How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying) and Bob Merrill (Funny Girl and Carnival!) based their show on Capote's story about a writer—obviously Capote himself—who is fascinated by his eccentric neighbour, Holly Golightly.
