Kiss Me, Kate

KISS ME, KATE  

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter 
Book by Bella and Samuel Spewack 

 

August 1-4

Another openin’, but not just another show! Cole Porter’s Broadway treasure, Kiss Me, Kate, the first winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, is a clever reimagining of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. This captivating “play within a play,” a device the Bard used in his own writing, highlights the turbulent backstage romance and onstage shenanigans between a divorced, but still infatuated, celebrity couple. Kiss Me, Kate was the first show Porter wrote in which the music and lyrics were firmly connected to the script, and it proved to be his biggest hit.  As the New York Times wrote, “Kiss Me, Kate asserts that there is still a place for sophisticated grown-up fun in New York theater.” Kiss Me, Kate is an electric reminder of the golden age of Broadway—a classic comedy peppered with eighteen classic Cole Porter songs including “Another Op’nin, Another Show,” “Wunderbar,”  “Why Can’t You Behave,” “So In Love,”  “Too Darn Hot,” and “I Hate Men” to name a few. Under the stylish direction and choreography of Diane Lala, this Kate Me, Kate will entice you to brush up on your Shakespeare and your Porter with this spectacular story and magnificent music!
