Skylight Music Theatre presents…
Kiss Me, Kate
Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Sam and Bella Spewack
Passions run high onstage and off as a tempestuous couple struggle to present a musical version of Taming of the Shrew. Blending the irreverent humor of William Shakespeare and Cole Porter, this brilliant battle of the sexes won the very first Tony Award for Best Musical and is considered one of Broadway’s great treasures, featuring unforgettable classics like Why Can’t You Behave? Too Darn Hot and Another Op’nin’, Another Show. Ages 11 and up.
