About this show

This reading offers the brilliant wit of Noël Coward in three delightful bites, served up by over 20 of New York's most beloved actors. After complimentary sparkling spirits, the evening unfolds: "Red Peppers," described by Coward as "a vaudeville sketch sandwiched in between two parodies of music hall songs"; "Shadow Play: A Musical Fantasy," a surreal love story involving a married couple and their younger selves; and "Ways and Means," a madcap comedy about a young couple on the make. These are three gems from a cycle of 10 one-acts originally written for Coward himself to perform with the legendary Gertrude Lawrence, after audiences couldn't get enough of them in Private Lives.
