  • The rich are generally different. But in matters of the heart, they’re just as scatterbrained as the rest of us. Heiress Tracy Lord (Grace Kelly) is engaged to one man (John Lund), attracted to another (Frank Sinatra) and, just maybe, in love again with her ex-husband (Bing Crosby) in this effervescent musical reinvention of Philip Barry’s play The Philadelphia Story featuring an endlessly delightful Cole Porter score. 

    Among High Society’s high points: Sinatra and Celeste Holm ask Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Crosby and Kelly share True Love, Der Bingle and Ol’ Blue Eyes swing-swing-swingle Well, Did You Evah? and Crosby and Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong jive with Now You Has Jazz. Yes, indeedy, we has!

  • Strolling along 5th Avenue or going on the bum as A Couple of Swells, Judy Garland and Fred Astaire lead a parade of music (17 Irving Berlin tunes and an Academy Award® winning adaptation score arranged by Johnny Green and Roger Edens) and gotta-dance fun (including Astaire’s Drum Crazy) in this neverending delight co-starring Ann Miller (performing a knockout Shakin’ the Blues Away) and Peter Lawford (gamely crooning The Fella with the Umbrella with Garland). Don’t let this colourful Easter Parade pass you by!
