Another tremendous musical from the GCT. Seriously - go and see it! Wonderful performances from all, though I have to give a special mention to Clayton Farris and the rest of the ensemble in "Too Darn Hot" - that number could so easily have seemed awkward and forced, but he carried it with ease - and to the spirited performance of "Tom, Dick, or Harry" - another one that's hard to carry off, particularly if your audience has seen the movie version and has high expectations for the dancing involved. Dink O'Neal was an impressive male lead - what a voice - but the single best song for me was, surprisingly, "From This Moment On", a duet between female lead Donna Cherry and George Champion as General Harrison Howell, practically stealing the show despite his very limited stage time. Very tempted to go again!

This was another fabulous production at the GCT.
I love the intimate atmosphere and the theatre's attention to family entertainment. The lead performers were especially well chosen with strong voices and talent. The entire ensemble easily...continued
This Cole Porter classic takes its inspiration from Shakespeare. Kiss Me, Kate recounts the backstage and onstage antics of two feuding romantic couples during a touring production of The Taming of the Shrew. Sparkling with 18 classic Cole Porter songs — including “Another Op’nin’, Another Show,” “Wunderbar” “So in Love,” “Always True to You in My Fashion,” “Too Darn Hot,” among many others — Kiss Me, Kate epitomizes the Broadway musical comedy at its irresistible best.
Cole Porter’s most successful musical, the original production of Kiss Me, Kate opened on Broadway at the New Century Theatre on December 30, 1948. It garnered five Tony Awards in 1949, the same number the revival claimed in 2000.
