Just last night, Roundabout Theatre Company welcomed Kelli O'Hara (Lilli Vanessi), Will Chase (FrEd Graham), Robert Fairchild (Bill), Heléne Yorke (Lois), Chuck Cooper (Harry Trevor/Baptista), Norm Lewis (Harrison), Richard Kind (Gangster) and John Pankow (Gangster) for a one-night-only Benefit Concert Reading of Kiss Me, Kate, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter and book by Sam and Bella Spewack, music direction by Patrick Vaccariello and choreography by Warren Carlyle. Roundabout's Associate Artistic Director, Scott Ellis, directed this special event.

Proceeds from the Benefit Concert Reading of Kiss Me, Kate support Roundabout Theatre Company's many programs and initiatives, including the Musical Theatre Fund which has allowed Roundabout to produce acclaimed musicals such as She Loves Me, Company, Nine, The Pajama Game, Sunday in the Park with George, Anything Goes, On the Twentieth Century, Into the Woods, The Robber Bridegroom and this season's Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical.

In Cole Porter's sparkling 1948 musical, the warring lovers of The Taming of the Shrew are causing trouble both onstage and off. While putting on a musical version of Shakespeare's play, exes FrEd Graham and Lilli Vanessi can't decide if they're enraged, enamored, or enormously confused whenever they cross paths out of character. Throw in some mistaken identity, a pair of surprisingly eloquent gangsters, and a whole lot of romantic entanglements, and what you get is a dazzling classic that earned the first-ever Tony award for Best Musical.
