High SocietyMaria Friedman directs this latest production of the Cole Porter musical, High Society, staged at the Old Vic in the round, in which the socialite Tracy Lord finds that three suitors add to the general chaos of pre-wedding proceedings. Busy planning her wedding, the bride-to-be is sidetracked when her ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven appears to try and win her back. Tabloid reporter Mike Connor, there to cover the nuptials, also takes a shine to the Long Island socialite and husband-to-be, George Kittredge, is also vying for her affections. Featuring hit songs including 'True Love', 'You're Sensational', 'Well did you Evah?' and 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?', this promises to be a sparkling musical celebration.

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
