The mutli-Tony Award-winning Cole Porter masterpiece that set the standard for great musicals and then broke the mold! Inspired by the real life story of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontaine, the undisputed king and queen of Broadway legend from the 1920s to the 1950s. This sparkling sensation is, at its core, a true battle of the sexes. A charming leading man and his superstar ex-wife are starring in a production of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. As they swing from love to loathing and back again, their behind-the-scenes battles spill onto the stage, and shine a bright light on long-standing historic issues of gender inequality.
Kiss Me, Kate is a fantastic evening of amazing entertainment, celebrated music, fabulous dance, great performances and a little something more to tell us about how far we have come and how far we still have to go.
Produced as a part of the 2018 citywide Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare Festival.
