BWW Reviews: Sparkling KISS ME, KATE at Barrington Stage Company
by Larry Murray - Jun 16, 2014

For this classic musical, Barrington Stage went big - and it pays off in a rollicking, ribald KISS ME, KATE with top notch singing, dancing, and saging. Cole Porter's musical gets a great cast that does his music proud, while not mining the genius of Bella and Samuel Spewack's book for every possible laugh. (more...)
