Out of This World
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Dwight Taylor and Reginald Lawrence
In this rampant Musical Comedy, the Roman Gods Mercury and Jupiter are in search of some entertainment of the human kind. The focus of their attention is a young bride, Helen and her husband, Art. Mercury joins the two on their trip to Athens, intending to put himself between the blushing newlyweds. While the men are busy chasing Helen, the goddess Juno (Jupiter's wife) is playing games of her own with inept gangster Nikki as her reluctant sidekick.
Featuring a dazzling score by Cole Porter (Anything Goes, Kiss Me Kate), the show opened on Broadway in 1950 and played for 157 performances and received its UK Stage Premiere at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2004.
