High Society


(out of 5)

Delightful musical version of The Philadelphia Story has  getting ready to remarry, but not before ex-husband  sticks his nose into the mix and  shows up to throw our heroine’s situation (and emotions) into a tizzy.  Just as spirited in story as the original, this version is further highlighted by some wonderful songs written by Cole Porter, the best of which is the lovely ballad ‘True Love”. Kelly is perfectly lovely, and Frank and Bing sound great in both their solos and their few duets together.  also makes an appearance singing the fabulous ‘High Society Calypso’, and  has a brilliant supporting role.
