In this tour-de-force one-woman show, Linda Lee Thomas (Mrs. Cole Porter), candidly recounts, through song and story, her life’s journey with Cole Porter.
Though Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamour-filled life.
With innovative arrangements, the timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter weave through the compelling narrative of Love Linda, examining the darker sides of their life, while also celebrating the deep love that blossomed through their unconventional relationship.
