Kiss Me Kate

Director: Jo Davies; Written by: Bella Spewack, Samuel Spewack; Music and lyrics: Cole Porter

This exuberant show-within-a-show mixes Shakespeare'sThe Taming of the Shrew with some sparring actors, gun-toting gangsters, and Cole Porter classics like Too Darn Hot and Brush Up Your Shakespeare.

It's revolves around a production of Shakespeare's play, and follows the backstage love affair the actor/manager Fred and his leading lady Lilli Vanessi (who also happens to be his ex-wife). Thinks start to get complicated when Fred's current love comes along with her gambler boyfriend Bill... plus a couple of gangsters who somehow manage to get caught up in the show.

The show is an irresistible celebration of the joy (and madness) of working in theatre, and Cole Porter's jazzy score features one show-stopping hit after another.
