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.

2h 30m | Ends Jun 30 | Studio 54 (Midtown W)

Don't see it if you don’t like revivals of old fashioned musicals or if you need a rap bridge in every song you listen to. Hamilton it isn’t (thank God).

Also This is a standard, high-quality Roundabout musical revival. Gloriousl... Read more Read less
