Kiss Me, Kate is a Broadway classic, directed by Trevor Nunn at the Old Vic

Kiss Me, Kate tells the story of a musical production of The Taming of the Shrew and the on and off stage clashes between Fred Graham, the director, producer and star of the show, and his leading lady and ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi. With music and lyrics by Cole Porter, the terrific score is shot through with wit, charm and energy, with spectacular choreography by Stephen Mear (Crazy For You, Betty Blue Eyes, Hello Dolly and Mary Poppins). This glittering production of an exuberant show-within-a-show received rave reviews. More information can be found here
