Written by Cole Porter, David Armstrong, Mark Waldrop and Bruce Coyle; directed by TWU Theatre Program Director Patrick Bynane, Ph.D.; and with musical direction from Melissa Hall, you will get a kick out of this show. Cole Porter’s timeless classics will be under in the spotlight, presented with fresh arrangements and a contemporary twist. Over fifty of his songs will be woven into a postmodern event that feels as much like a book musical as a revue. By turns wry, irreverent, romantic, touching and hilarious, this promises to be a evening unlike any other.
The cast of “Hot n’ Cole“ features TWU students Kaylon Browning, Camden Riefler, Tyler Voyles, Emily Perry, William Clark, Kendra Flusche, Haleigh Beck and Regan Ellis.
This production will feature designs from Assistant Professor Russell McKinley (technical logistics and sound design), Associate Professor Rhonda Gorman (costumes), and TWU graduate student Derek Salazar (assistant lighting designer).
