High Society

High Society

Season 3 2017: 17 August to 2 September 2017 (Matinees 20 August and 27 August.)

A musical comedy. Music and lyrics by Cole Porter, book by Arthur Kopit, additional lyrics by Susan Birkenhead, based on "The Philadelphia Story" by Philip Barry. Directed by Alan Burrows. By special arrangement with Origin Theatrical Pty Ltd (Tams-Witmark) Tracy Lord's ex-husband, C.K. Dexter Haven, refuses to let her marry the bland George Kittredge as planned and the two reporters who arrive to cover the wedding find much more than they'd anticipated among this niche of high society. Imagine that Philip Barry had written "The Philadelphia Story" his classic 1939 romantic comedy, not as a play but a musical, with Cole Porter as his collaborator, and you have … HIGH SOCIETY! It’s not only the show's title but the show's first song, in which the Lord Family's amazing staff sets the scene (the Lord family lives on a waterfront estate in Oyster Bay now, not Philadelphia). Come join the Lords for a weekend of fun and games!
