Love, Linda, the exciting, one-woman theatrical journey starring acclaimed jazz vocalist Stevie Holland, returns to the Triad Theater in a newly expanded production.
Love, Linda is about Linda Lee Thomas, the southern beauty who married, and was a driving force behind legendary songwriter Cole Porter. Though Cole Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamour-filled life. The timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter are presented with a jazz-inflected and swinging approach, and weave through the compelling narrative of Love, Linda, examining the darker sides of their life, while also celebrating the deep love that blossomed through the most unconventional of relationships. Arrangements by award winning composer Gary William Friedman, and original book is by Holland and Friedman.
"A real sense of triumph!...Stevie Holland has a graceful, silken voice that glides easily through some of Cole Porter's best-known songs, as well as a handful of comparative rarities." - Daniel M. Gold, THE NEW YORK TIMES
There is a 2 drink minimum in addition to admission.
