WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Egotistical leading man, director, and producer Fred Graham is reunited with his ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi, when the two are forced to play opposite each other in a new production of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. The battle of the sexes continues onstage and off as it becomes clear that, as much as Fred and Lilli profess to hate each other, they're still in love. Alongside their bickering liaison, the show's supporting actor, Lois Lane, supports her gambling boyfriend, Bill, as he attempts to evade the clutches of local gangsters. Throw in cases of mistaken identity, the mob, and comedic routines, and you get Kiss Me, Kate — a dazzling Broadway show with music and lyrics by Cole Porter that earned the very first Tony Award for Best Musical.
