Kiss Me, KateThe acclaimed director Trevor Nunn directs a rebooted version of Cole Porter's dazzling Broadway classic Kiss Me, Kate at the Old Vic. The famous show-within-a-show revolves around the production of a musical staging of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and the comical conflict both on- and off-stage between the show's director, producer and star, and his leading lady (who happens to be his ex-wife). Throw in gun-toting gangsters, reckless gamblers, sparring actors and romantic tussles, and you get this timeless, exuberant, Tony Award-winning hit. Alex Bourne, David Burt, Clive Rowe, Hannah Waddingham and Adam Garcia all star in this wonderfully choreographed classic, which runs from November through to March.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
