00 News & Updates, 01 Auditions & Talent Calls, 2018 Kiss me, Kate

Auditions for Kiss me, Kate!

Kiss Me, Kate is Cole Porter’s rollicking and naughty take on
Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Leading man Fred Graham
is reunited with his ex-wife, Lilli Vanessi, when the two are forced to
play opposite one another in a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s
Taming of the Shrew. The battle of the sexes continues onstage and
off, as it becomes clear that, as much as this couple profess to hate
each other, they are also still in love. Throw in a few cases of
mistaken identity, the mob, bawdy Shakespeare humor and Cole
Porter lyrics into the mix and you’ve get Kiss Me, Kate — a dazzling
Broadway classic that earned the very first Tony award for Best
