About the Show

A musical based on based on the Philip Barry play, The Philadelphia Story, and the 1956 musical screen adaptation with Porter's songs, High Society.

Story: Tracy Lord's ex-husband, C.K. Dexter Haven, refuses to let her mary the bland George Kittredge as planed and the two reporters who arrive to cover the wedding find much more than they'd anticipated among this niche of high society.
