February 24
11:00 AM 2012

Welcome to BWW's New Daily ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!

Today in 1955, Silk Stockings opened at the Imperial Theatre, where it  ran for 478 performances. Silk Stockings is a musical with a book by George S. Kaufman, Leueen MacGrath, and Abe Burrows and music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The musical is loosely based on the Melchior Lengyel story Ninotchka and the 1939 film adaptation it inspired. It ran on Broadway in 1955. This was the last musical that Porter wrote for the stage.

In celebration of this day, we bring you 'All of You' as performed by Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse in the 1957 film. Click below to check it out!
