BWW TV: They Open on Broadway! Kelli O'Hara, Will Chase & More Celebrate Opening Night of KISS ME, KATE!

They open in Venice on Broadway! It was all wunderbar last night at Studio 54, as Kelli O'Hara, Will Chase, and the company of Roundabout's latest musical, Kiss Me, Kate, celebrated opening night.

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 hilarious dash of Shakespeare's Shrew, and the songwriting genius of Cole Porter at his stylish, sexy, sophisticated best, including "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.

Kiss Me, Kate features a book by Sam and Bella Spewack, music and lyrics by Cole Porter, direction by eight-time Tony nominee and Roundabout's Associate Artistic Director Scott Ellis, choreography by Tony winner Warren Carlyle, and music direction by Paul Gemignani. The creative team includes David Rockwell (Sets), Jeff Mahshie (Costumes), Donald Holder (Lighting), Brian Ronan (Sound) and David Brian Brown (Hair & Wig design).

We're taking you inside opening night with O'Hara, Chase, Corbin Bleu, Stephanie Styles and more!
