this show celebrated (among other things) the anniversary of dramatist, actor, songwriter, singer, director and genius noel coward's birth. i won't hold the following smack-talking about barrel organs against him, nor the fact that he clearly preferred pianos:

brass bands have blared it, string orchestras have swooned it. palm court quartets have murdered it, barrel organs have ground it out in london squares and swing bands have tortured it beyond recognition…and I am still very fond of it and very proud of it. (noel coward on his enduring classic i’ll see you again.)
