Kiss Me, Kate

Performances at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 21-22 and 28-29; 2 p.m. Sept. 23 and 30

Passions run high as leading lady Lilli Vanessi and her ex-husband, actor/director Fred Graham, battle onstage and off in a production of Shakespeare’s "Taming of the Shrew."

With romance, comedy, sophistication and behind-the-scenes high-jinks, the 1999 evival version of “Kiss Me, Kate” combines the word-play and irreverent humor of Cole Porter and William Shakespeare, with a book by husband and wife duo Samuel and Bella Spewack.

Musical numbers include “So In Love,” “Wunderbar,” “Tom, Dick or Harry,” “Too Darn Hot,” “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” “I Hate Men,” “Always True to You (In My Fashion)” and “Another Op’nin, Another Show.” This performance will feature the 1999 revised version with updated script and orchestrations.

Music and lyrics by Cole Porter; book by Samuel and Bella Spewack; stage direction and choreography by Molly Lajoie; music direction by Brian DeMaris and Danielle Hutchison.

“Kiss Me, Kate” is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., 560 Lexington Ave., New York, NY 10022.
