Features & Highlights
- Born in Teddington, Middlesex on 16 December 1899, Noel Pierce Coward was a star pupil of the Itala Conti stage school and was recalled by fellow pupil and contemporary Gertrude Lawrence as "...a thin, unusually shy boy with a slight lisp". Little could either teenager have foreseen the years of world fame that would follow and the times when they would work as a team and enthrall their audiences.
- Noel's first big break came in 1923 in the Andre Charlot revue London Calling where he appeared with his soul mate Gertrude Lawrence. As librettist and composer, his Parisian Pierrot as performed by Gertrude was the hit of the show.
- The following year saw Coward's career really begin to snowball. He had written a meaty part for himself in a play called 'The Vortex', which created a sensation with its frank depiction of drug taking.
- With the revue On With The Dance in 1925 Noel began a nine year partnership with leading impresario C B Cochran.
- Noel had a busy war, giving innumerable troop concerts all over the world. Along the way he wrote the comedy 'Blithe Spirit' (later filmed) and a handful of songs including 'London Pride', inspired by his admiration at the way Londoners were determinedly going about their lives even during the Blitz.
