OUT OF THIS WORLD
Lyrics & Music by Cole Porter.
Book by Dwight Taylor and Reginald Lawrence
The story: Out of this world is a hilarious adaptation of Plautus's comedy Amphitryon. It features one of Cole Porter's finest scores, and first opened on Broadway in 1950.
The New York Post was complimentary: "'Out of This World' is a fine, beautiful, and imaginative new musical comedy with attractive and characteristic Cole Porter songs, a handsome production, some splendidly dynamic dancing, an attractive cast, and a good story that is an excellent combination of the humorous and the romantic. It is first-rate entertainment." - New York Post, 1950
