Calendar Highlight: 'Night and Day'

Florida Rep's Cole Porter-tuned production runs through March 11.

BY January 5, 2018


Producing Artistic Director Robert Cacioppo is working toward his dream of winning his Florida Repertory Theatre the coveted Regional Theatre Tony Award, one world premiere at a time. This season it’s Night and Day: Love Lost and Found through the Eyes of Cole Porter, first conceived by Cacioppo when he was just 19. He describes the latest incarnation following two couples as a “fun, quirky show, a sort of opera using only Cole Porter tunes” (36 of them), without one line of non-lyrical dialogue. It’s a sort of sister piece to three others he’s penned about American composers (Irving Berlin, Johnny Mercer and George Gershwin), and its run has been extended all the way through March 11 in Florida Rep’s more intimate Artstage Studio Theatre.
