Show Info

Conversations with Coward
Starring Simon Green 
With David Shrubsole


Simon Green and David Shrubsole, the creators of the sold-out Coward at Christmas, the Drama Desk-nominated Traveling Light and So, This Then is Life, return to 59E59 Theaters with an imaginative, musical new show for the festive season celebrating Sir Nöel Coward's remarkable impact on British and American culture.
Fusing theatricality, music, and conversations (both real and imagined) with gems from British musical icon Ivor Novello, Life is for Living blends the wit of Fascinating Aida's Dillie Keane and the satire of Jeremy Nicholas with the wisdom of Maya Angelou, the lyricism of Irving Berlin, and the syncopation of George Gershwin.
