Cole Porter's YOU NEVER KNOW To Be Performed In April

Cole Porter’s love affair with Paris is brilliantly evoked by this delightful farce – last seen on Broadway in 1938.  Master, Baron von Hummer (James Zanelli) and his valet, Gaston (Kevin Kraft), switch places and fall in love with mistress, Mme. Von Baltin (Kate Merrily) and maid, Maria (Jennifer Evans) who have also switched places. Adding spice to this amorous stew is Ida, the Baron’s jilted paramour (Christy Morton), and “the outraged husband” (Todd Faulkner).  Bill Coyne appears as chauffeur, messenger and waiter (at different times).Songs include: I Am Gaston; By Candlelight; Alpha to Omega; At Long Last Love; What Is that Tune?; For No Rhyme or Reason; Let’s Put It to Music; I’m Back in Circulation; I’m Going In For Love; What Shall I Do?
This work was written as a chamber piece but arrived on Broadway in a much larger version.  Not only are we restoring the original libretto, we have restored 10 Cole Porter songs that had been cut.

Cole Porter's You Never Know will be performed at McGinn/Cazale (2162 Broadway, 3rd floor [between 76th & 77th Streets] 0A) and is directed by Thomas Sabella-Mills. James Stenborg is the musical director.
