COLE PORTER
Itemized list of expenses, totaling $1,680, incurred by Porter and his wife during a stay at the Waldorf Astoria, December 1931
Document unsigned, 3 pages, 6½x6¾. Itemized, printed bill for charges incurred at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, December 17-20, 1931. Pencil notes (unknown hand) explain some of the charges. The bill includes rooms ($45 per night), restaurant meals, phone calls, stamps, drugs, tips and cash advances. Cole Porter (1891-1964), known for his bouncy, lively style and witty lyrics, was a successful Broadway composer by 1928. He composed music and lyrics for more than 20 musicals, including Anything Goes (1934), Kiss Me, Kate (1948), Silk Stockings (1955) and High Society (1956). His classic songs include "Night and Day," "Begin the Beguine" and "I've Got You Under My Skin". Porter often stayed at the Waldorf Astoria while in New York, and he and wife Linda Lee Thomas Porter maintained a permanent residence in the Waldorf Astoria Towers from 1940 until her death in 1954, his a decade later. His Steinway piano can still be seen, and played, in the cocktail lounge. December 1931 was one of the rare intervals during this era in which Porter did not have a play running on Broadway. The New Yorkers had ended its run in May 1931. Gay Divorce would not open until November 1932. Horizontal fold crease. Staple hole at upper left. Fine condition.
