Tensions run high as fiery Lilli Vanessi and her pompous ex-husband, Fred Graham, battle both onstage and off in a musical version of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. Amidst the battling ex's, chaos ensues as charming Lois Lane tries to support her gambling boyfriend, Bill Calhoun, who simultaneously attempts to evade the grasp of a few musically inclined gangsta heavies. The outcome is a quick witted and dazzling romp with some of Cole Porter's most beloved and enduring songs. KISS ME, KATE won the first ever Tony Award for Best Musical, and with classic musical hits such as, "Why Can't You Behave," Wunderbar" and "So In Love," the end result is a show so darn hot, it sizzles.
