Cole Porter and Noel Coward have come to represent the ultimate in sophistication and urbanity Anything Goes, Private Lives, Night and Day, Lithe Spirit, It's De-Lovely, Bitter Sweet, Begin the Beguine, Kiss Me Kate, Hay Fever are but a few of the plays, musicals and songs they created. It is a body of work that was tremendously exciting when it first appeared and remains remarkably popular today. Based on access to previously unpublished manuscripts, lyrics, scores and letters, plus dozens of interviews, Noel & Cole presents a fresh and often surprising portrait of these two geniuses and their works. Gives the reader a clear insight into both men's private lives, illuminating their musical achievements, including a frank discussion of their homosexuality.
