Ghostlight Records has announced that Kiss Me, Kate - 2019 Broadway Cast Recording, is available on CD in stores and online, starting today, Friday, January 10. The album was released for download and streaming last year. The show - based on last season's hit production from the Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) - was directed by Scott Ellis, choreographed by Warren Carlyle, with music direction by Paul Gemignani. Kiss Me, Kate features a book by Sam and Bella Spewack, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The production was nominated for four 2019 Tony Awards, including "Best Revival of a Musical." Kiss Me, Kate Marks the 24th cast album recording for Roundabout Theatre Company since launching the musical theatre program with She Loves Me in 1993.

Kiss Me, Kate opened to widespread critical acclaim, including: The New York Times, Daily Beast, New York Daily News, New York Observer, NY1, Washington Post, New York Stage Review, Newsday, Towleroad, Broadway News, Deadline, Entertainment Weekly, and Hollywood Reporter. The production ran at Studio 54 on Broadway from March 14 through June 30, 2019.
Kiss Me, Kate stars Tony Award-winner Kelli O'Hara as "Kate/Lilli Vanessi," Tony Award-nominee Will Chase as "Petruchio/Fred Graham," Corbin Bleu as "Lucentio/Bill Calhoun," Terence Archie as "Harrison Howell," Mel Johnson Jr. as "Harry Trevor/Baptista," James T. Lane as "Paul," Stephanie Styles as "Lois Lane/Bianca," Adrienne Walker as "Hattie," Lance Coadie Williams as "Gangster (Second Man)" and John Pankow as "Gangster (First Man)."

In the constellation of musical comedy masterpieces, Kiss Me, Kate shines as perhaps Broadway's most sparkling achievement. This is the winner of the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical, alive with onstage romance, backstage passion, comedy high and low, a dash of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, and a stylish, sexy, sophisticated songbook that includes "Too Darn Hot," "So in Love" and "Always True to You in My Fashion." Once again, Roundabout catapults you to musical comedy heaven, with a brand-new Kiss Me, Kate.
