"Kiss Me, Kate, inspired by The Taming of the Shrew, is a charming story following 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," press notes state.
Kiss Me, Kate brings an all-star cast with familiar favorites and brilliant newcomers to the Paper Mill Stage.
