About the show

Roundabout Theatre Company’s sparky revival of Kiss Me, Kate on Broadway is causing mayhem and delighting audiences. With classic songs from Cole Porter and a Shakespearean lovers’ feud at its heart, catch this new version at the Studio 54 Theatre.

Kiss Me, Kate needs little introduction thanks to its pop-culture clout. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, it follows a cast putting on a musical version of the play. The drama is just as loud offstage, however, as director and star Fred Graham feuds with his leading lady (and ex-wife), Lilli Vanessi.

Tony Award-winner Kelli O’Hara stars as Lilli/Kate, with previous credits including Follies and The King and I. Playing opposite her as Fred/Petruchio is Will Chase (Something Rotten, Rent), who is well-known for appearances on ABC’s Nashville and CBS’s Madame Secretary. Corbin Bleu also stars, having previously appeared in Mamma Mia! and In the Heights.

Kiss Me, Kate at the Studio 54 Theatre features a book by Sam and Bella Spewack, whose other writing credits include the Academy Award-nominated My Favorite Wife. Cole Porter (Anything Goes, Silk Stockings) provides music and lyrics, and eight-time Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis directs. Ellis also directed Tootsie, which is currently playing at the Marquis Theatre.

With memorable songs including “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” and “So In Love”, Kiss Me, Kate is one of musical theater’s ultimate feel-good shows. Brush up your Shakespeare and don’t miss this “deliriously fun” (The New York Times) revival before it closes in New York.
