Music & lyrics: Cole Porter
Book: Abe Burrows
Unlike all of the extensively rewritten revivals and completely reinvented film version, these performances return to the original material. The brilliant score includes It's All Right With Me, I Love Paris, I Am In Love and C'Est Magnifique.

Music & Lyrics: Cole Porter
Book: Orson Welles
Orson Welles's only attempt to write, direct and star in a lavish Broadway musical. Labelled 'Wellesapoppin' by one critic, Around The World has a sprightly score by Cole Porter. None of this work has been heard since 1946.
