Sophisticated, romantic, and delightfully hilarious, Kiss Me, Kate is a sparkling battle of the sexes that is a love letter to both Shakespeare and showbiz.

Cole Porter’s joyful and high-spirited musical comedy follows the ferocious backstage antics of a touring company performing The Taming of the Shrew, featuring a flamboyant feuding couple, gun-toting gangsters, and some of the best numbers ever written for the stage: “Another Op’nin’, Another Show,” “Too Darn Hot,” “Wunderbar,” “So in Love,” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”  

Broad, brazen, and shamelessly irresistible, Kiss Me, Kate was the first musical to win a Tony Award® for Best Musical. Discover its timeless charm in this song-and-dance extravaganza heralded as a defining musical of the 20th century.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.
