Cole Porter's Kiss Me, Kate won the very first Tony Award® for Best Musical in 1949 and has been delighting audiences ever since.
Inspired by The Taming of the Shrew, this charming story follows two musical theatre actors -- once married, now divorced -- as they star together in a Broadway-bound musical version of Shakespeare's play. Soon, tensions mount and tempers flare, until it seems no amount of acting can save this show. But when two gangsters arrive to settle an old score, success becomes a matter of survival.
Filled with slapstick humor (thanks to Sam & Bella Spewack's brilliant book), classic songs like "Wunderbar" and "So in Love," and sizzling dance numbers like "Too Darn Hot," it's no wonder Kiss Me, Kate became Cole Porter's biggest hit.
