Leave it to Me!
By Cole Porter

Cambridge Independent Theatre
Arts Theatre, Cambridge, 13 - 18 May 1991
Directed by Abigail Morris

It's not often you get to perform in the British Premiere of a Cole Porter musical - and we were very lucky to be able to do so. This was one of the few left unperformed in this country, which is a surprise as it includes such great numbers as Get out of Town, and the far more famous My Heart Belongs to Daddy. A comic look at the clash between capitalism and communism, in Abigail Morris' adaptation of the book it took on a slightly more sinister 'cold war' feel. I played Sozanov, a Russian agent with facial hair inspired by Lenin.
