L'événement culturel de l'été à Bruxelles!
Noël and Gertie
Noël Coward and Gertrude Lawrence formed a legendary on and off stage partnership. They looked rich, they were elegant; they sang, they danced, they made jokes through clenched cigarette holders. They were impeccable.
Noël Coward had a polished witticism for every occasion. To many he is known as a playwright, creating such classics asPrivate Lives, Present Laughter, Blithe Spirit and Hay Fever, and to others as the composer of timeless songs such as Mad About the Boy, I'll See You Again, and Mad Dogs and Englishmen.
Gertrude Lawrence was a celebrated actress who triumphed on stage in the world premiere productions of Lady in the Dark and The King and I. Together, they formed a remarkable team and their friendship became show business legend.
Noël and Gertie is an entertainment crafted from diaries and letters between Coward and Lawrence and features songs, sketches and scenes from his best loved works, reminding the audience that Coward's talent wasn't simply to amuse but also to hold a mirror up to the frailty of the human condition.
