About the Play
As backstage bickering between the co-stars of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew threatens to sabotage opening night, along come a couple of gangsters with a gambling debt to collect. The result is hilarity on and off the stage – all punctuated by Cole Porter’s unforgettable melodies and wickedly witty lyrics.
With such hits as “So In Love” and “Too Darn Hot,” this classic from the golden age of musical theatre is a fun-filled way to “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”
Kiss Me, Kate is generally suitable for most ages. A mild expletive is uttered, and in the backstage scenes some characters appear in their undergarments. The production uses haze, flashing lights and the sound of a gunshot.
