I felt it was amateurish. The dancing was stilted and there was no chemistry between the lovers. The 3 soviets were funny and probably the best part of the show. I was very disappointed in the performance.
I have seen much better performances...continued

First time Goldstar user, and first visit to the Carpenter Performing Arts Center--Not disappointed by either!
Silk Stockings was very enjoyable, funny and entertaining. The entire cast was wonderful! I highly recommend it!

I love musical theater…. but this performance just does not seem to work … things do not click.

Even Porter’s hit “What is this thing called love” was butchered with broken and mis-translated Russian.

The Commissar looked more like a Nazi...continued

New Book by Stuart Ross

Lyrics by Cole Porter

Director – Stuart Ross

Musical Director – Darryl Archibald

Choreographer – Lee Martino

Soviet-American relations were never funnier or had more singing and dancing than in this delightful tale involving a U.S. director, a Soviet composer scoring his film, and a pretty Russian spy trying to keep the composer from defecting.

In this musical remake of the 1939 classic film Ninotchka, an alluring but aloof female Communist visits Paris on an assignment to evaluate three Russian officials. But when she meets a charming U.S. filmmaker there, her perspective on the world changes — and the chilly bureaucrat soon finds herself melting in his arms.

Iit’s not long before she’s enjoying such decadent western pleasures as jazz, makeup and silk stockings. The classic Cole Porter songs include “All of You”, “Stereophonic Sound”, “Too Bad” “Paris Loves Lovers”, “Silk Stockings”, and “Fated to be Mated”.
