Up To Date

The Life, Times And Music Of Cole Porter

Thought of as one of the most significant 20th Century songwriters, Cole Porter filled the American songbook with his compositions. His style was greatly influenced by his life experiences, many of which were in stark contrast to those of his contemporaries. 

Guests:

  • George Harter is the director of Musical Theater Heritage.
  • Ben Gulley is a singer performing in “An Evening with Cole Porter.”

Cole Porter is the inspiration behind the upcoming show, “An Evening with Cole Porter” at Musical Theater Heritage, which runs March 3-13. For tickets and information, visit www.mthkc.com.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region. Email me at lisa@kcur.org or follow me on Twitter @larodrig.
