Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Bella and Samuel Spewack
Combine Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew with the music of Cole Porter and you get Kiss Me, Kate! A play-within-a-play, each cast member’s on-stage life is complicated by what is happening offstage.
Originally produced in 1948, Kiss Me, Kate has been considered on of Broadway’s treasure. It was revived in 1999, taking advantage of new technology in music and keeping in mind evolving social values.
