2012 Oh, Coward!

Oh,Coward  – a revue, in two acts, of the music and words of Noël Coward, devised by Roderick Cook. The revue contains the themes: England, family album, travel, theatre, love and women.

Oh,Coward – premiered Off-Broadway on October 4, 1972 and was one of the last Noël Coward shows staged during his life. It played 294 performances at the New Theatre, New York.

It was originally devised for two men and a woman, though the Players extended the cast considerable!

The original show included Barbara Cason, Jamie Ross and Roderick Cook, who also directed as well as devised the revue. A 1975 London production at the Criterion Theatre, starred Cook, Ross and Geraldine McEwan, and ran for 2 months. The show later played on Broadway for 56 performances  in November, 1986 at the Helen Hayes Theatre.  This production received two Tony Award nominations.
