LOVE, LINDA: THE LIFE OF MRS. COLE PORTER, is a one-woman, tour de force musical and theatrical journey, which Stevie Holland co-created and originally starred in, Off-Broadway.
LOVE, LINDA, tells the story of Linda Lee Thomas, the Southern beauty who married and was a driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter at the dawn of the roaring twenties.
Though Cole Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and together they lived a spectacular, glamour-filled life.
With swinging, jazz-inflected arrangements by award-winning composer Gary William Friedman, Cole Porter’s timeless music and lyrics weave through the compelling narrative, celebrating the deep love that Linda and Cole shared, while examining the darker sides of their life.
The score for LOVE, LINDA includes such beloved Porter songs as “Night and Day”, “I Love Paris,” “In the Still of the Night” and “Love for Sale.”
LOVE, LINDA enjoyed a successful Off-Broadway limited engagement premiere at the York Theatre 2013-2014, directed by TONY-winner Richard Maltby, Jr.
