This elegant production features over 30 classic Cole Porter songs: Anything Goes, De-Lovely, Easy to Love, Friendship, I Get A Kick Out Of You, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love), So In Love and the title song. Let’s Misbehave captures the elegance, romance, wit and passion that are the signature of Porter’s musical legacy. Late one night in the glamorous 1930’s, three single witty friends make a pact to fall in love by the Fourth of July. As the hour gets later and the martinis get drier, it becomes clear that the two lovely ladies have each set their heart on the same leading man.
WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING
“lushfully executed California premiere” - LA Times
“Cole Porter’s music sparkles like a champagne bottle about to burst.” - BroadwayWorld
WOW – “Take three of Southern California’s most talented musical theater performers, then add three dozen or so Cole Porter songs linked together by an ingenious book, and you’ve got Patrick Young and Karin Bowersock’s Let’s Misbehave, a brand spanking new Cole Porter musical now getting a sparkling California premiere at Long Beach’s International City Theatre.” - StageSceneLA
“Run do not walk to Let’s Misbehave. The singing, dancing and acting of the cast is just superb, as is the piano musical accompaniment.” - Straight Talk with Art Levine
“Spending two hours with International City Theatre in the company of Cole Porter is a rare delight.” - Musicals in LA
“As good as the trio is vocally, their acting – including in the midst of their songs – is even more impressive. There’s not a moment lost between them, not a missed reaction, not a wrong chord, not a false move. That includes their dancing, as they perfectly maneuver themselves through Nielsen’s engaging choreography. This is acting, kids. Accept no substitutes.” - GreaterLongBeach.com
“The trio’s singing is pitch perfect, their acting charming and the hoofing choreographed by director Todd Nielsen is good fun to watch” - LA Progressive
“you’ll find this a flawless ICT production.” - Patch
“Bowersock’s book also invests in the characters’ emotions, so audiences care if these three swells find true love, turning Let’s Misbehave into more than just a compilation of Porter’s hits.” - Arts in LA
“All three performers have several opportunities to scorch the stage with versions of some of Porter’s finest works. Alley ignited the stage in “In the Still of the Night”. Shelton gets to show her superior singing skills in “Easy to Love” and “I Happen to Like New York”. And Ginsburg does more than justice with his versions of “Begin the Beguine” and the difficult “Night and Day”. For the singing alone this review is worth attending.” - Golden Rain News
“The talented trio of Lindsey Alley, Marc Ginsburg and Jennifer Shelton shine shine in their solos and harmonize splendidly on their group numbers. Brian Baker is the onstage accompanist and does a sublime job of delivery the Porter manifesto of notes.” - Stage Happenings
