Kiss Me, Kate

Author(s): Music and lyrics by Cole Porter, book by Sam and Bella Spewack Company: Howard Panter for Trafalgar Theatre Productions in association with the Barbican

This musical farce whisks audiences into a world of backstage chaos and romantic entanglements as a theatre company attempts to put on a production of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.

The battle of the sexes takes centre-stage as former spouses feud, only to find the off-stage antics rival the drama on-stage.

Throw in a number of cases of mistaken identity, confused love, gangsters and a spectacular tap routine and you get Kiss Me, Kate.
