The Lap of Luxury

The Emergence of the Cruise Ship Industry: the Pioneers, Private Lives, Drama, Comedy, and the Grandeur of Today and of Days Gone By

2:00pm – 3:00pm at Coe Hall

$5 admission fee, members and children under 12 are free

Written and Directed by David Houston

A READING IN THE STYLE OF RADIO DRAMA

Actors Diana Heinlein and David Houston

The cruise-ship endeavor as glorified in books, plays, memoirs and movies. Diana and David perform “in the style of radio drama” a touching tale about missionaries returning to a new life in America; romance, music, and comedy from Broadway — including a beautiful scene from Noel Coward’s epic Cavalcade; and a ridiculously funny moment by Christopher Durang in which a ship’s captain attempts to conduct a wedding and a burial at sea simultaneously. Underneath there’s the lush symphonic music of Erich Korngold featuring music for The Sea Hawk.
