Award-winning singer and writer Gregory Moore and keyboard artist Simon Mulligan re-create the songs and humor of British legend Noël Coward from his "cabaret years" (the early 1950s) — especially the tunes he sang at Wilbur Clark's Desert Inn in June 1955. Frank Sinatra chartered a private plane to shuttle "every star in Hollywood" to Coward's opening night (Bogie and Bacall, Judy Garland, David Niven, and others). Just as his own star was fading in his homeland, America embraced Coward with great affection — and he liked America right back!
Note: Audience members are encouraged (not required) to dress "circa 1955 Las Vegas glitz."

After acclaimed performances together across the U.S. and in London, the pair's unscripted evening will include stories LuPone hasn't talked about anywhere else and would share only at the prompting of Rudetsky. Proceeds from the event will benefit Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS.
