This week I am attending “Broadway Songbook: Cole Porter” at the Ordway. Cole Porter wrote music for many well known shows including “Anything Goes” which is also coming to the Ordway soon. In November of 2011 I saw my sister, Emma Stratton, play Kate in his show “Kiss Me Kate” (see pictures below). When she sang “So In Love” I was floored. Although I had heard the song in the past, I had never heard it live and it was absolutely beautiful. The lyrics are lovely and although I do not have my sisters version (darn) I think Rachel York did a nice job with it.
