Kiss Me Kate description

Cole Porter’s hit musical starring the multi award-winning Adrian Dunbar (Ridleyw/em>, Line of Duty) and Broadway musical superstar and Tony Award winner Stephanie J. Block (Into The Woods, 9 to 5).

From the Producer of Anything Goes, comes a new production of Kiss Me, Kate. With Cole Porter’s razor-sharp witted lyrics, it’s ‘The ultimate Broadway musical from the golden age’ (Financial Times) and is Broadway musical comedy meets Shakespeare meets Noises Off.

Directed by Bartlett Sher (The King and I, South Pacific and To Kill A Mockingbird) and with a company of over 50 including a full-scale orchestra, Kiss Me, Kate features classic songs including Another Op'nin', Another Show, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and Tom, Dick or Harry. Adrian Dunbar stars as Fred Graham with Tony Award winner Stephanie J. Block making her West End debut as Lilli Vanessi.

Kiss Me, Kate is the original farce and whisks you into a world of backstage chaos and romantic entanglements. It’s the perfect Summer musical for 2024.
