YOU'VE GOT THAT THING! Celebrates Cole Porter At The Triad Theater
Celebrate the life of musical prodigy, Cole Porter, with those who knew him best: his muse Ethel Merman (Analisa Bell), his wife Linda (Alexandra Foley) and Edward, a young writer who embodies the essence of all his male lovers (Quinn Martin). A show where anything goes, You've Got That Thing! A Celebration of Cole Porter is happening at The Triad Theater on Saturday, March 30 at 9:30pm.
Written by Australian duo Izaak Lim and Nick Maclaine, You've Got That Thing! premiered in Perth, Australia, to the delight of critics. Bell has been with the production since the beginning, and went on to produce a season at Melbourne's The Butterfly Club in 2014. She is excited to be mounting the show, albeit for one night only, in NYC!
Featuring classics like Night and Day, Let's Do it, Let's Fall in Love, Anything Goes, and, of course, You've Got that Thing!, this delightful show has humor, pathos, and a glorious soundtrack.
