"Slightly Pornographic" Unknown Cole Porter Revue Gets American Premiere Over 85 Years Later

Cole Porter's collection of tunes known as The Ambassador Revue fell into oblivion after performances at Café des Ambassadeur in Paris in 1928. Some 85 years later, the virtually unknown revue gets an American premiere in a June 27 concert at The Town Hall in New York City. Tom Wopat, Anita Gillette, Jason Graae, Amy Burton, Catherine Russell and Ted Louis Levy will take the stage under the direction of Ken Bloom. Vince Giordano supplies arrangements and will perform alongside the Nighthawks Orchestra. Here, Wopat, Graae, Burton and Gillette give a sneak peek at tunes from the show. Read the Playbill story.
