Kiss Me, Kate

Kiss Me, Kate


Cole Porter’s dazzling comedy of musical mischief will leave you feeling positively ‘WUNDERBAR’!

On the opening night of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew in 1940s Baltimore, the tempestuous love lives of actor-manager Fred Graham and his leading lady (and ex-wife) Lilli Vanessi are set to collide.

Throw in Fred’s current paramour Lois Lane and her gambler boyfriend Bill – plus a couple of gun-toting gangsters who somehow get caught up in the show – and the stage is set for a funny and farcical battle of the sexes!

Cole Porter’s riotously inventive homage to the sparkling wit of Shakespeare, Kiss Me, Kate is an irresistible celebration of the joy and madness of working in theatre. With show-stopping songs including 'BRUSH UP YOUR SHAKESPEARE,’ 'ALWAYS TRUE TO YOU IN MY FASHION' and 'SO IN LOVE,' performed by an all-singing, all-dancing cast of international singers and West End stars, our spectacular production is simply ‘TOO DARN HOT’ to miss out on!’
