Kiss Me Kate (1953)

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 10 February - 12 February 2020
Category Cinema Screening

Weekday Matinee Series
Starring Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson

When two squabbling ex-marrieds are cast as squabbling Renaissance romantics in a musical The Taming of the Shrew, life imitates art, art imitates life and it all proves no musical comedy imitates Kiss Me Kate, the backstage/onstage delight from the 1948 Broadway smash hit, featuring 14 Cole Porter songs.

Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson are the tangled twosome So in Love despite her I Hate Men flashpoints. Ann Miller adds heat, razzle-tap-dazzling in Too Darn Hot and wowing Tom, Dick and Harry (Bob Fosse, Tommy Rall, Bobby Van). Fosse and Hermes Pan provide zesty choreography under George Sidneys nimble direction.

So Brush Up Your Shakespeare and enjoy. Kate wont just kiss you. She’ll floor you.
