The Story

When the luxurious S.S. American sets sail from New York to London, on board are a saucy female evangelist, a love-struck pauper and a stowaway who just may be the fearsome Pubic Enemy #13. Packed with exuberant dancing, constant surprises, and Cole Porter’s most witty, celebrated songs- from the jubilant title tune to “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Friendship,” and “It’s De-Lovely”- this show moves full steam ahead!
