Upcoming Production: "Kiss Me, Kate"
Combine Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" with Cole Porter's music and lyrics to get "Kiss Me, Kate," an instant success with every cast and audience. This is a play-within-a-play where each cast member's on-stage life is complicated by what is happening offstage. Musical numbers include Why Can't You Behave, So In Love Am I, Wunderbar, Tom, Dick or Harry, Were Thine That Special Face, Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, I Hate Men, Always True to You (In My Fashion)
and Another Op'nin, Another Show.
"Kiss Me, Kate" is fun, melodious and sophisticated. Production dates are July 26-28 and Aug. 1-3, 2013. Learn more
