PORT TOWNSEND — The music of Cole Porter — “Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall in Love),” “Night and Day,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” plus little-known numbers from his songbook — will come to the Key City Public Theatre stage tonight through June 30.
The revue unfolds at the Key City Playhouse, 419 Washington St., which is fitted out with cabaret seating.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays; tickets range from $24 to $29 except the pay-what-you-wish performances June 9 and 13.
Information and ticket purchase are at keycity publictheatre.org and 360-385-5278, or patrons can stop by the playhouse between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday through Friday.
On performance nights and afternoons, the theater opens an hour before show time for ticket sales at the door.
“The Decline and Fall of the Entire World as Seen through the Eyes of Cole Porter,” a revue set in the early 1940s, takes us into “the tempest of a tumbling world,” as Key City artistic director Denise Winter puts it.
This being Porter, we go directly to a party in New York City’s Greenwich Village.
There, the performers sing, dance, brag and sashay: Key City’s own Christa Holbrook and guest artists Selena Tibert, Matthew Alexander and Michael Covert.
Surrounding them with music are Linda Dowdell at the baby grand piano, Maryann Tapiro on cello and Lou Babik and Clover Coupe-Carlin switching off on drums.
