Seating is at intimate round tables.  Simon Green, tall, slim, totally charming and with a wonderful wry smile sings Noel Coward’s songs, with a few by other songwriters, and songs developed from some of his letters and other writings by Green and beautifully turned to music and played by the exciting pianist David Shrubsole.

Film Note | Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward | The 1947 film with Rex Harrison, Kay Hammond

Since Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit is currently on Broadway, it seems like a good time to look at the 1947 film, directed by David Lean.
