The show is also referred to as Cochran's Revue or Cochran's 1928 Revue, which was its title for the pre-London run. The show contains three enduring Noël Coward songs: "World Weary", "A Room With a View" and "Dance, Little Lady".
This revue was first presented by Charles B. Cochran at the Palace, Manchester on 28 February 1928, where it ran until March 17 as Charles B. Cochran's 1928 Revue a pattern of titling that both Cochran and André Charlot - the world's leading revue impressarios - had adopted since the advent of revue as a form of entertainment. The show was a tremendous hit and transferred to the London Pavilion on 22 March 1928 as This Year of Grace.
It opened in London on 22 March 1928 at the London Pavilion and ran for nearly 10 months, with a cast featuring Sonnie Hale, Maisie Gay, Jessie Matthews, Sheilah Graham and Tilly Losch among others. Doris Zinkeisen was one of the costume designers for the production. Since the revue was still playing to capacity audiences that autumn, Noël Coward and Charles B. Cochran decided to recruit an entire new cast for the Broadway transfer to avoid breaking up the profitable London run, with Coward himself replacing Sonnie Hale, Beatrice Lillie taking over Maisie Gay's role, and Florence Desmond substituting for Laurie Devine as Coward's partner in "Dance, Little Lady".
Produced by Arch Selwyn, the Broadway production opened on November 7, 1928 at the Selwyn Theatre, where it ran for 157 performances. Several new numbers for Beatrice Lillie (solo or in duet with Coward) were interpolated into the original London score for this new production, while an additional Act II song "Mexico", originally included in pre-London performance, had been dropped before the London opening.
