Kiss Me Kate

March 6, 2013

Cole Porter’s “Kiss Me Kate” is an old fashioned musical about musical theatre people putting on a show in the Old Vic. It has some wonderful well known songs and an amusing plot. The absolutely sensational Hannah Waddingham (who we last saw at The Palladium as the Wicked Witch) and the very attractive and charming Adam Garcia kept my attention when they were on stage.

It is staged authentically in 1948 but I have seen this formula in so many old Hollywood movies of Broadway that I kept yawning only to be brought back to life by a stunning musical number.
