Kiss Me, Kate!

May 2 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Kiss Me, Kate is the Tony Award winning musical comedy that reinvigorated American composer and songwriter Cole Porter’s career with its ridiculous Shakespearean antics and a score of witty, hummable hits.

A play within a play, where passions run high as leading lady, Lilli Vanessi, and her ex-husband, actor/director Fred Graham, clash onstage and off in a musical production of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. On opening night, the rekindling of their affection is complicated by misguided flirtations and romantic discord, gambling debts, singing gangsters, and other enjoyable backstage shenanigans.

Kiss Me, Kate combines the irreverent humour of four magnificent writers: William Shakespeare, Sam and Bella Spewack (Tony Award for Best Author – Musical, 1948) and Cole Porter (Tony Award for Best Musical, 1948) with memorable musical numbers including “So In Love,” “Wunderbar,” “Tom, Dick or Harry,” “Too Darn Hot,” “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” “I Hate Men,” “Always True to You (In My Fashion)” and “Another Op’nin, Another Show.”

“Kiss Me, Kate” is presented by arrangement with ORiGiN™ Theatrical on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC, A Concord Theatricals Company.
