Kiss Me, Kate (Play)

Music & Lyrics by Cole Porter, Book by Sam & Bella Spewack

Sunday July 21, 2013
Crafton-Preyer Theatre, Murphy Hall, Stage Too!
Kiss Me, Kate is not just another show opnin at the University Theatre; it is a musical comedy with wit, style, humor, and exuberance. This cleverly crafted production took home five Tony Awards in 1949 including Best Musical. Kiss Me, Kates sophisticated humor charms audiences by adapting Shakespeares "Taming of the Shrew" to the musical stage for an all-out battle of the sexes. When Fred Graham, the shows director, producer and star sparks on and off-stage conflict with this ex-wife and leading lady Lilli Vanessi, chaos ensues as characters sing, dance and fall in love in verse. This University Theatre Revisionist or Jewel Box production includes an ensemble of 11 performers who play all the roles.
