    A famous composer of musical theater shows during the 20th Century, Cole Porter's life is brought forth thanks to his own words and music. Porter created the music and lyrics for such shows as Anything Goes and Kiss Me Kate (the latter of which he wrote while disabled and in constant pain following a horseback riding accident). The show uses music and lyrics from virtually every part of his writing life from Yale (he created a fight song for the school's athletics while he attended) to his time writing for Broadway and other outlets to his time living in Paris.

    More information on the show can be found at As Yet Unnamed Theatre Company's Facebook page.
