A charming homage to the sparkling wit of Shakespeare and an irresistible celebration of the joy and madness of working in theatre, Cole Porter's witty, jazz-inflected score features hit after hit, with show-stopping numbers including ‘Another Op'nin' Another Show,' ‘Brush Up Your Shakespeare,' ‘Always True to You in My Fashion' and ‘Too Darn Hot.'


The full-scale Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North bring the magical sound of Broadway to the London Coliseum.


Synopsis


Set both on and off-stage during the production of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew, Kiss Me, Kate revolves around the tempestuous love lives of actor-manager Fred Graham and his leading lady and ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi.


Throw in Fred's current paramour Lois Lane, her gambler boyfriend Bill - and a couple of gangsters who somehow get caught up in the show - and the stage is set for a funny and farcical battle of the sexes!
