“A triple-threat artist…(Holland) attacks the songs with such intelligence and wit, that by evening’s end she has become Mrs. Cole Porter.” – DC Theatre Scene
“An emotionally absorbing solo show.” – New York Stage Review
LOVE, LINDA: THE LIFE OF MRS. COLE PORTER
LOVE, LINDA is a one-woman musical that Stevie Holland co-created and originally starred in, off-Broadway.
LOVE, LINDA, tells the story of Linda Lee Thomas, the Southern beauty who was a driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter.
Though Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and together they lived a spectacular, glamour-filled life.
With innovative 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.
LOVE, LINDA enjoyed a successful Off-Broadway premiere at the York Theatre 2013-2014, starring Stevie Holland with direction by TONY-winner Richard Maltby, Jr. It returned in a special limited engagement to the Triad Theater October 2018, and was filmed for worldwide streaming in 2021.
