A clever retelling of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew,” this Cole Porter classic boasts romance, comedy, a scintillating score, and a hilarious look at the behind-the-scenes hijinks of a musical. In this musical-within-a-musical, an ex-husband and wife are cast in “The Taming of the Shrew,” where, despite their constant bickering, it becomes clear that they are still in love. This dazzling Broadway show features musical numbers like “So In Love,” “Wunderbar,” “Tom, Dick or Harry,” “Too Darn Hot,” “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” and “I Hate Men.” Kiss Me, Kate is the first musical ever to be awarded the Tony Award for Best Musical!
