NoŽl & Gertie
An entertainment devised by Sheridan Morley with the words and music of Noël Coward.
Two of Australia’s rising stars of musical theatre transport you to a world of glamour, wit and elegance in a timeless musical which has been acclaimed throughout the world.
Noël Coward and Gertrude Lawrence formed a legendary on and off stage partnership. They looked rich, they were elegant; they sang, they danced, they made jokes through clenched cigarette holders. They were impeccable.
James Millar (Grey Gardens, Oklahoma, Jerry Springer: The Opera) returns from London to play Noël Coward and is joined by Lucy Maunder (Dr Zhivago, The Rocky Horror Show, Jekyll and Hyde). Under the direction of showbix legend Nancye Hayes, they take a contemporary look at two of the 20th century’s greatest stage personalities and the era they helped to define.
Featuring songs, sketches and scenes from Coward’s own works, diary excerpts and letters between the two, Noël and Gertie is highly entertaining, strangely familiar and surprisingly touching. If you love musical theatre, celebrity, gossip, glamour, the plays of Noël Coward; if you love shows like Downton Abbey, The Great Gatsy, Pride and Prejudice, Poirot, or Mary Poppins, then you’ll love Noël and Gertie - a glittering evening of delight, wit, song and dance.
