SPECIAL FROM “BROADWAY WORLD”
STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 6/9/16- Cole Porter
Welcome to BWW’s ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!
Happy Birthday, Cole Porter! Porter’s many musicals include Fifty Million Frenchmen, DuBarry Was a Lady, Anything Goes and Can-Can, and his numerous hit songs include “Night and Day”, “I Get a Kick out of You”, “Well, Did You Evah!” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”. 1948’s Kiss Me Kate was his most successful show, running for 1,077 performances in its original Broadway run. The production won the Tony Award for best musical (the first Tony awarded in that category), and Porter won for best composer and lyricist.
In celebration of this day, we bring you ‘Blow, Gabriel Blow’ as performed by the 2011 revival cast of Anything Goes. Click below to check it out!
