Featured Reviews For Kiss Me, Kate


‘Kiss Me, Kate’ Broadway Review: Kelli O’Hara and Will Chase Are So in Love - The Wrap
Scott Ellis can be credited with keeping his two leads playing from the same slightly jaded Valentine's Day poem. He wisely keeps the more manic comedy to the show's secondary couple, Lois Lane and her boyfriend, Bill Calhoun. Playing that chronic cuckold, "High School Musical" and "Dancing With the Stars" alum Corbin Bleu leads a spectacularly danced "Too Darn Hot," with choreographer Warren Carlyle in top form.

Theater Review: "Kiss Me, Kate" - NY1
The Roundabout Theatre's big, boisterous, brawling "Kiss Me, Kate" is a revival to fall for. It stars Kelli O'Hara who lights up the stage with her incomparable talents. No surprise there, but the big revelation in this production is the way the creative team managed to solve the show's inherent sexism. Based on Shakespeare's "Taming Of the Shrew," the idea that any woman needs taming is problematic. But here thanks to some subtle tweaks and re-staging, it's the story that's getting tamed without losing any of its ferocious bite!
