Kiss Me, Kate

Kiss Me, Kate is a musical about a production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ and the conflict on and off-stage between Fred Graham, the show’s director and star, and his leading lady and ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi.


A secondary romance concerns Lois Lane, the actress playing Bianca, and her gambler boyfriend, Bill, who runs afoul with some gangsters.

The musical is known for its witty dialogue, memorable score, and its clever blend of Shakespeare and contemporary theatricality.
