Tony winner Kelli O'Hara returns to Broadway in the Roundabout's production of Cole Porter’s sparkling 1948 musical riff on Shakespeare's 'Taming of the Shrew.' More…
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 (O’Hara) 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 'Kiss Me, Kate'—a classic that earned the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical.
See it if You adore Kelli o hara singing gorgeously however miscast. If only she didnt have to act. Annoying Lois Lane underwhelming will chase .
Don't see it if You don’t have great memories of the movie or former revival. This does no favors to the show
See it if you never have and just enjoy old style B/way musicals
Don't see it if you want the lyrics to make sense. Or don't have much use for average-at-best musicals.
See it if You want to see talented singing in a drawn out production.
Don't see it if You want to see a less entertaining cross between something rotten and on the 21st century.
See it if You want to see the great Kelli O'Hara enthrall an audience with great performances of "So in Love" and "I Hate Men."
Don't see it if You saw the Marin Mazzie/Stokes production in 1999-2000. It was far superior. This is, almost literally, a bus and truck version.
See it if You want to see the only bright ray of sunshine in this dull, unnecessary revival - Stephanie Styles (as Lois Lane/Bianca).
Don't see it if You want a energetic, colorful, quick witted staging of this dud musical. Kelli O’Hara is terribly miscast as Lilli Vanessi. Pass on it!
See it if you'd watch Kelli O'Hara read the phone book. That would be funnier than her miscast performance here. Makes you yearn for Marin Mazzie.
Don't see it if you're expecting any fresh spark of innovation or originality. Too Darn Hot is very athletic, but it goes on forever without ever building.
