Too Darn Hot to Quit! KISS ME, KATE Extends Four Weeks

Roundabout Theatre Company announces a four-week extension of the new Broadway production of the musical comedy Kiss Me, Kate, after opening to rave reviews on March 14, 2019. This classic musical comedy is directed by Scott Ellis, choreographed by Warren Carlyle with music direction by Paul Gemignani and features a book by Sam and Bella Spewack, and music and lyrics by Cole Porter.

The limited engagement of Kiss Me, Kate is now extended through Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 W 54th St).

KISS ME, KATE opened on Thursday, March 14, 2019 to widespread critical acclaim.

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.
