KISS ME, KATE
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter. Book by Sam and Bella Spewack
Broadway’s dazzling classic is brought to the stage in this brilliantly funny romantic musical comedy with choreography by Strictly Come Dancing’s Oti Mabuse. Featuring some of the greatest show tunes of all time by the legendary Cole Porter, including It’s Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and Another Op’nin Another Show, Kiss Me, Kate is the original award-winning Broadway musical and a sparkling tribute to theatre in all its greasepaint and glory.
When ego-centric Fred Graham and his fiery ex-wife Lilli Vanessi find themselves starring opposite each other in a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew, sparks begin to fly. Despite chaos reigning on and offstage, the show must go on but will the cast make it through the performance or does fate, with the help of two gangsters, have other ideas?
