DuBarry Was a Lady. Porter said…

In December 6, 1939 , a musical, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter, premieres in New York City.

The musical DuBarry Was a Lady opened on Broadway at the 46th Street Theater, transferred to the Royal Theater on October 21, 1940 and closed December 12, 1940, after 408 performances.

In the show starred Bert Lahr, Ethel Merman and the gorgeous Betty Grable with her million dollar legs, and among many beautiful Porter’s songs, “Friendship” was one of the highlights. Because of the huge success the musical was made into a 1943 film, DuBarry Was a Lady, starring Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, and Gene Kelly.porterA great performance from a great musician  and a great cast! Exactly 73 years ago…
