Harry Groener and Sharon Lawrence Will Star in Limited Run of Love, Noel

News   Harry Groener and Sharon Lawrence Will Star in Limited Run of Love, Noel Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts will present a return engagement of Love, Noël: The Letters and Songs of Noël Coward Dec. 5-21 in the Lovelace Studio Theater.

Devised and written by Coward authority Barry Day, the limited engagement is directed by Jeanie Hackett.

The cabaret production stars three-time Tony Award nominee Harry Groener as Coward and Emmy nominee Sharon Lawrence as the many women who came into his life and influenced his work.

Love, Noël, according to press notes, "interweaves the music of Coward and witty letters sent between him and his famous friends over the years. Based on Barry Day’s book 'The Letters of Noël Coward,' Love, Noël traces Coward’s six-decade career as a playwright, composer, director, actor and singer."

Interim artistic director Patti Wolff said in a statement, “Love, Noel was one of the most popular productions of The Wallis’ first season, so it was an easy decision to bring it back for an encore run. We’re delighted that this year’s cast features two standout performers: the renowned Harry Groener, one of Broadway’s great musical actors, and Sharon Lawrence, a fantastic actress of stage and screen. Both are immense talents who breathe their special brand of life into this smart, witty show, taking cabaret to wonderful new heights.”
