Noel Coward with Constance Collier and Neysa McMein

Noel Coward with Constance Collier and Neysa McMein

Forget your 21st century blues and mark your calendars for an upcoming exhibition on Noel Coward at San Francisco’s Museum of Performance & Design.  Star Quality: The World of Noël Coward opens to the public on April 17, 2009 and will remain on view through August 29, 2009.  The San Francisco show is the third version of an exhibition that began at Ten Chimneys and was on display at the National Theatre last year.  Somewhat amazingly, I did manage to see it fleetingly in London (during an interval) and can recommend it highly.  This latest incarnation should be even more spectacular in the MSD’s much larger gallery space.

Unfortunately, now I can’t get that song from Evita out of my head.  Julie Covington, where are you when we need you?
