About Kiss Me Kate

Award-winning director, Trevor Nunn returns to The Old Vic to direct the acclaimed Chicester Festival production of Cole Porters dazzling, Tony award-winning, Broadway classic, Kiss Me, Kate.

In Kiss Me Kate, it’s the out-of-town try-out of a new musical version of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew; sparks fly on stage and off as sparring between the co-stars threatens the opening night. In a classic show-within-a-show, over which loom two gun-toting gangsters with gambling debts to collect, Lilli and Fred’s romantic shenanigans offstage tangle with the onstage story of Kate and Petruchio as their two worlds dizzyingly collide.

Cole Porter’s dazzling score for Kiss Me Kate is shot through with wit, charm and a great charge of Broadway energy and includes Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, Another Opening’, Another Show, So In Love Am I and Always True to You In My Fashion.

The Old Vic cast of Kiss Me Kate includes Alex Bourne, David Burt, Adam Garcia, Clive Rowe and Hannah Waddingham, with choreography by Stephen Mear.

Trevor Nunn has directed Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and Cyrano de Bergerac for Chichester and has been Artistic Director of both the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.

Stephen Mear has choreographed How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Music Man, Funny Girl and She Loves Me for Chichester and his West End work includes Mary Poppins, Hello, Dolly! and Crazy For You.
