Gertrude Lawrence

Gertrude Lawrence was a star of stage and screen in both England and America, revered by audiences and colleagues alike. She was born in London and made her stage debut at age twelve. She studied acting and performed around England, making her American debut with Beatrice Lillie in 1924, where she introduced “Limehouse Blues”.

She had known Noel Coward since childhood and starred in his first hit, London’s Calling! and in his later success, Private Lives. She was an actress of extreme talents who could play dramatic roles and musical comedy. She was a graceful dancer, and a singer, who, although everyone agreed sang off-key, put over a song so well that the Gershwins, Cole Porter, and Rodgers and Hammerstein were eager to have her perform their work.
