KISS ME KATE

JAN 27 - FEB 12, 2017

 

SYNOPSIS

Combine Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew with Cole Porter’s music and lyrics to get Kiss Me Kate — an instant success. This is a play-within-a-play where each cast member’s on-stage life is complicated by what is happening “offstage." Musical numbers include “Why Can’t You Behave," “So In Love Am I," “Wunderbar," “Tom, Dick or Harry," “Were Thine That Special Face," “Too Darn Hot," “Brush Up Your Shakespeare," “I Hate Men," “Always True to You (In My Fashion),” and the famous “Another Op’nin, Another Show." Kiss Me Kate is fun, melodious and sophisticated.
