Description

The American Premiere of a 1928 musical revue by COLE PORTER Musical arrangements by Grammy-winner VINCE GIORDANO Directed by KEN BLOOM and featuring VINCE GIORDANO AND THE NIGHTHAWKS ORCHESTRA and special guests When the Jazz Age crossed over to France in the 20s, Cole Porter was in the middle of it. In 1928, he created a revue for the Café des Ambassadeur, Paris’ hottest night club, which became quite the sensation. Later that year, Porter had his first hit on Broadway and The Ambassador Revue fell into oblivion.

The production boasts new arrangements by Grammy Award-winning bandleader Vince Giordano He will be joined by Grammy-winner Catherine Russell, Tony nominees Tom Wopat and Anita Gillette, and Ted Louis Levy, four-time Bistro Award-winner Jason Graae,  the luminous soprano Amy Burton, in a line-up evoking the original 1928 production. The evening will be directed by Ken Bloom, and feature Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks Orchestra.

 

Giordano is the leading interpreter of popular music of the 1920s and 30s. Along with his band, the Nighthawks, he has supplied music for such notable projects as HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Woody Allen's Radio Days, and Martin Scorcese's The Aviator.
