Combine Cole Porter’s music and lyrics with Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew to get one of Broadway’s most endearing shows, Kiss Me, Kate.
When the egotistical performer Fred Graham is reunited with his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi in the leading roles of Taming of the Shrew, the drama off stage leads to pandemonium on stage. Mistaken identity, gangsters, and a colorful cast of characters add up to a hilarious musical comedy filled with beloved Broadway standards Too Darn Hot, I Hate Men, Brush Up Your Shakespeare.
