Check out photos from the 5th Avenue Theatre's new production of Kiss Me, Kate. Kiss Me, Kate, a significant work in the canon of great musical theater, features a dynamic cast including Cayman Ilika as Lilli Vanessi/Kate, Ben Davis as Fred Graham/Petruchio, Clyde Alves as Bill Calhoun/Lucentio and Robyn Hurder as Lois Lane/Bianca.

Kiss Me, Kate also features an acclaimed local lineup of 5th Avenue Theatre favorites including Allen Fitzpatrick as General Howell, Allen Galli as Second Man, Sarah Russell as Hattie, Jeff Steitzer as Harry/Batista, Ty Willis as Paul and Richard Ziman as First Man.

Kiss Me, Kate is the multi-Tony Award®-winning Cole Portermasterpiece that set the standard for great musicals and then broke the mold. Inspired by the real life story of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, the undisputed king and queen of Broadway 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 on to 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.
