Love, Linda: The Life of Mrs. Cole Porter, is a one-woman musical and theatrical journey about Linda Lee Thomas, the Southern beauty who was the driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter at the dawn of the roaring twenties.
Though Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and together they lived a spectacular, glamour-filled life.
"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...
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."
