Kiss Me, Kate - 2016 - New York History , Info & More

Studio 54 (Broadway)
254 West 54th St. New York, NY

Roundabout Theatre Company welcomes an all-star cast of Kelli O'Hara (Lilli Vanessi), Will Chase (Fred Graham), Robert Fairchild (Bill), Helene Yorke (Lois), Norm Lewis (Harrison Howell), Chuck Cooper (Harry Trevor/Baptista), Richard Kind (Gangster) and John Pankow (Gangster) in a one-night-only Benefit Concert Reading of Kiss Me, Kate, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter and book by Sam and Bella Spewack, music direction by Patrick Vaccariello and choreography by Warren Carlyle. Roundabout's Associate Artistic Director, Scott Ellis, will direct this special event.

In Cole Porter's sparkling 1948 musical, the warring lovers of The Taming of the Shrew are causing trouble both onstage and off. While putting on a musical version of Shakespeare's play, exes Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi can't decide if they're enraged, enamored, or enormously confused whenever they cross paths out of character. Throw in some mistaken identity, a pair of surprisingly eloquent gangsters, and a whole lot of romantic entanglements, and what you get is a dazzling classic that earned the first-ever Tony award for Best Musical.
