Ben Bagley, the proven master of revue, has concocted a tongue-in-cheek historic cavalcade from the rare jewels of Cole Porter’s vast musical treasure¬†trove. The ‘world’ under scrutiny is that between 1919 and 1945 when, indeed, some considerable declining and falling went on. Here, the generally¬†unsuspected meanings behind many of Porter’s songs indicate that during times of chaos and destruction, he saw the world with an impudent, highly¬†sophisticated and indomitably euphoric gaze. Porter created a world of his own through his songs, and made ours richer in the process.
