This new production of the musical is directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher (The King and I/ South Pacific) and features a company of over 50 including a full-scale orchestra. Kiss Me Kate features an array of Cole Porter classics such as Another Op’nin’, Another Show, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and Tom, Dick or Harry, and of course Kiss Me, Kate.

Kiss Me, Kate follows the onstage and off-stage antics of a theatre company attempting to put on a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. In a world of backstage chaos and romantic entanglement, Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate is a Broadway musical comedy, mixed with Shakespeare and a sprinkle of Noises Off.

From the producer of the Barbican’s previous shows, Anything Goes and A Strange Loop, this musical revival is set to be a hit this summer. Book your Kiss Me, Kate tickets now!
