“Love Linda” Musical Coming to Towle Theater

For its 20th Anniversary Season opening show, the Towle Theater is pleased to present the musical Love, Linda (The Life of Mrs. Cole Porter). The music and lyrics were written by Cole Porter, book by Stevie Holland with Gary William Friedman and arrangements and additional music by Gary William Friedman. In this tour-de-force one-woman show, Linda Lee Thomas (Mrs. Cole Porter), candidly recounts, through song and story, her life’s journey with Cole Porter.

Though Porter was gay, their companionship and love lasted through 35 years of marriage and a spectacular, glamour-filled life. With innovative arrangements, the timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter weave through the compelling narrative of Love, Linda, examining the darker sides of their life, while also celebrating the deep love that blossomed through their unconventional relationship. 

The Towle is excited to have Linda Wilczynski back on their stage as Linda Lee Thomas.  Previously, Linda has been seen at the Towle Theater as Vivien Leigh in Vivien Leigh: The Last Press Conference. She has also appeared in Parade, Tick Tick Boom! and Ordinary Days.  The Towle also welcomes back Valerie Webdell as music director and pianist.   

“Love, Linda” (The Life of Mrs. Cole Porter) runs February 24-26, March 3-5.  Performances on Fridays and Saturdays are at 8pm and Sundays are at 2pm.  The box office will open 1 hour prior to performance time.
