A one-woman, tour-de-force jazz musical about the lives of America's greatest songwriters, Cole Porter, and his muse and wife, Linda Lee.

Georgia Jamieson Emms plays Linda, accompanied by the jazz trio of Ayrton Foote (keyboard), Thomas Moore (bass) and Sebastian Macaulay (drums).

"As Mrs Porter, Jamieson Emms is convincingly the charming Southern Belle and gracious hostess. She gleefully reveals Linda’s cutting wit as she delivers the text with superb timing. Subtext and innuendo rule as well-known figures of the music world and high society are skewered by Linda’s pithy and sometimes pointed observations.

The show is beautifully written; lean and well-paced, it dances through the decades of the Porter marriage. Familiar and less well-known songs are set against the sometimes painful, often joyful events of Linda’s unapologetically privileged life and Cole Porter’s career."
