About this show

Based on Ernst Lubitch's brilliant romantic comedy, Ninotchka, where "Garbo Laughs" was the tag line, Silk Stockings uses the plot and characters of this film to launch a Hot Romance during the height of the cold war. The plot of Silk Stockings provides a humorous look at the stereotypical Soviet psyche, and Ninotchka's attempt to resist the temptations of Paris while valiantly carrying out her political mission, developed with logic and wit in this 1955 musical gem. This new adaptation of the original show was brought to life by Stuart Ross (Forever Plaid, York's Enter Laughing); Cole Porter's outstanding score remains a joy, and includes the ballads "All of You," "Paris Loves Lovers," "As on Through The Seasons We Sail," and "What Is This Thing Called Love" satires of Russia in "Red Blues" and "Hail, Bibinski," as well as "Stereophonic Sound."
