When David Benson was 12, his grandfather gave him a 78rpm record of Noël Coward singing his comic patter song ‘The Stately Homes of England’. He was instantly hooked.
In David Benson Sings Noël Coward, Noël Coward’s wonderful songs are brilliantly performed by David Benson, whose Think No Evil Of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams was a hit at the Library Theatre in October 1997.
Reprising to the role he played in the BBC’s Goodnight Sweetheart, David Benson indulges his life-long passion for the songs of Noël Coward in this witty and sparkling tribute to ‘The Master’.
David Benson Sings Noël Coward features Benson at his best as impersonator, host, raconteur, and singer, including songs such as ‘Mad Dogs and Englishmen’, ‘London Pride’, ‘Mad About the Boy’, ‘I’ll See You Again’, ‘If Love Were All’ and ‘Mrs Worthington’.
