In An Evening with Noel Coward Jessup explores all sides of Coward by having him sing some of the songs he composed. Though many of the songs are full of the wit and humor of his plays, songs like I Travel Alone show that isolation can often be an outgrowth of creative talent. Unique people are often lonely people. But Coward’s creative energy is what sustained him through the best and worst times. Jessup does an excellent job of maintaining Coward’s high energy as he sings his songs and tells his life story. Barry Lloyd’s accompaniment on the piano is inspiring, especially in the second act.
This is a must see for Coward fans, but it’s also educational and full of fine entertainment for audiences not familiar with Coward. For tickets or more information call (707) 588-3400.
