Australia - Cabaret.

Well, Did You Evah! Prolific American songwriter Cole Porter is celebrated in this one-man show starring cabaret performer Michael Griffiths.

He steps into the shiny shoes and elegant suit of the talented composer and lyricist, bringing Mr Porter to life with fine manners and a long list of well-known tunes.

Songs like Don’t Fence Me In, Night and Day and Too Darn Hot have been covered unimaginable time by everyone from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to Iggy Pop and Debbie Harry.

In this show, the award-winning Australian performer explores the colourful life and many timeless songs of Mr Porter. You’ll hear about high-living, grave misfortune, and a legacy that sparkles with wit and wisdom.

This intimate portrayal has earned Griffiths five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Best Cabaret award at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival.

“…you will leave on a little cloud of cabaret heaven; it's simply De-Lovely.” - The Herald, Scotland
