“What a swell party this is! A show that is exquisitely personal, almost a monologue with songs interwoven that amounts to an attempt to get under Porter’s actual skin. What set the songwriter’s own heart beat-beat-beating? Mr. Nadler projects his own educated opinion on that score, illustrated with the actual songs and even Porter’s own letters to the loves he had to seclude in the shadows of that not always enlightened era.”
Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
