Noel & Gertie
Sun 26 March
This is a telegram exchange between Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence sent in 1930:
Noel & Gertie is a warm and witty musical comedy based on the legendary friendship and professional collaboration of actor, playwright and songwriter Noel and the alluring and charismatic actress Gertie.
A major revival of Sheridan Morley’s hit play that originally ran in the West End for nine years, it is affectionately crafted from diaries and letters between a pair who epitomised an era of sophistication and elegance.
With minute attention to detail, it takes a perfectly-orchestrated trip down memory lane and features scenes from Private Lives, Tonight at 8.30 (including Red Peppers and Still Life) and Blithe Spirit.
These are offset with many of the best-loved songs: Mrs Worthington, Dance Little Lady, Sail Away and, of course, I’ll See You Again.
