About the show

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.

"'Kiss Me, Kate' is bland and unimaginative. Not only is Ms. O’Hara miscast—she is as warm and friendly as Kate is sharp-witted and spiky—but she and Mr. Chase have all the romantic chemistry of a pair of squabbling siblings. As for Mr. Ellis’s staging, it looks as though he’d put the show together while thinking about something else (which he may well have been, seeing as how he’s also directing 'Tootsie,' which opens on Broadway next month)."

Huge disappointment, Mediocre direction, Mediocre set, Mediocre choreography, Mediocre cast

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.

Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent, Overrated, Slow

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!
