Tams-Witmark to Present LOVE, LINDA: THE LIFE OF MRS. COLE PORTER
Tams-Witmark is pleased to announce an exciting new addition to their library of shows: LOVE, LINDA: THE LIFE OF MRS. COLE PORTER created by acclaimed vocalist/lyricist Stevie Holland with innovative musical arrangements by award-winning composer Gary William Friedman.
LOVE, LINDA is a 75-minute tour de force one-woman musical which, through song and story, candidly recounts the life of Linda Lee Thomas, the Southern beauty who married and was a driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter. Though Cole Porter was openly gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular glamour-filled life.
Robert Kimball, historian and author of The Complete Lyrics of Cole Porter said,
"LOVE, LINDA is one of the BEST Cole Porter shows EVER." Sargent Aborn, President of Tams-Witmark, was thrilled to make the announcement: "I'm very pleased that Tams-Witmark will represent LOVE, LINDA to various production houses all over the world and happy to add to our catalog of Cole Porter musicals that continue to inspire generation after generation."
The incredible score includes the highly memorable tunes of "So In Love," "I Love Paris,"
"My Heart Belongs to Daddy," "Night and Day," and "Wunderbar"! Scored for a jazz trio of piano-bass-drums, the license materials include a Piano-Vocal Score, Bass, Drum parts and a Prompt Book.
Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc. was incorporated in January, 1925. Tams-Witmark has always been an innovator in the licensing of musical plays, licensing the first large high school production of a Broadway musical approximately 75 years ago to James Monroe High School in New York City. The legend continues today, as thousands of schools and community theatres are presenting Tams-Witmark musicals each year. Tams-Witmark: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow.
