Kiss Me, Kate

Spring 2020

Kiss Me, Kate is a musical written by Bella and Samuel Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. Divorced Broadway stars Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi star in a musical adaptation of William Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew alongside rising young actors Lois Lane and Bill Calhoun. Backstage complications pile up due to a romantic misunderstanding between Fred and the soon-to-be-remarried Lilli, while Bill's gambling debts cause a pair of mobsters to become part of the show.
