Kiss Me, Kate
Cole Porter's beloved classic receives "Another Op'ini', Another Show" in this masterful 1999 Broadway revival (restaged and filmed in London) of the 1949 Tony Award-winning Best Broadway Musical, Kiss Me, Kate! When the egotistical Fred Graham mounts a musical adaptation of The Taming Of The Shrew with himself as director, producer, and star, he's got the perfect leading lady in mind: his movie star ex-wife! The fireworks both on stage and off between the two seem destined to sabotage the entire production... or will a romantic flame that's "Too Darn Hot" be rekindled?
With backstage shenanigans, gangsters trying to "Brush Up [their] Shakespeare," and a collection of Porter tunes that any "Tom, Dick, Or Harry" will love, Kiss Me, Kate remains an all-time favorite of musical fans from Padua to Peoria.
