The Broadway musical sensation KISS ME, KATE is on stage at the BritVic Theatre, Ascot
April 14 - 16, 2023

Follow the backstage antics of a touring production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, where things just don’t go to plan in the spirit of NOISES OFF and THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG. Cole Porter’s witty and high-spirited songs will transport you as a touring company gets ready to open a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew, starring a divorced couple whose offstage battles threaten to bring down the curtain.

This beloved classic features show-stopping dance numbers, Shakespeare-quoting mobsters, and a knockout score including “Another Op’nin’, Another Show,” “Wunderbar,” “So In Love,” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”

The original 1949 production of Kiss Me, Kate ran for more than 1,000 performances on Broadway and won the first Tony Award for Best Musical.

In addition to Kiss Me, Kate, the legendary Cole Porter’s shows included Anything Goes, Can-Can, Silk Stockings, and DuBarry Was a Lady. Husband-and-wife writing team Sam and Bella Spewack’s credits include the films My Favourite Wife (Academy Award nomination) and Week-End at the Waldorf starring Ginger Rogers, as well as the play My Three Angels. The Spewacks each won two Tony Awards for Kiss Me, Kate.

Make a date in your diary as it’s a show not to be missed and get ready for a sizzling evening that’s simply “Too Darn Hot”!
