Kiss Me Kate will be performed by the Utah Festival Opera. View the website for more details.
In this heady blend of modern showbiz and classic Elizabethan theater, actor Fred Graham stages a musical version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. In a bid to increase box office receipts, he casts film star Lilli, his temperamental ex-wife, in the role of the shrewish Katherine. As the production unfolds, Fred and Lilli discover that while they can't live with each other, they also can't live without each other - just like Petruchio and Katherine in the Bard's original work. Add a couple of bumbling gangsters, a second feuding romantic couple, and a plethora of great Cole Porter songs such as "Another Opening, Another Show," "So in Love," "Too Darn Hot," and "Faithful in My Fashion," for an irresistible entertainment experience.
Tickets can be purchased online, by phone, or in person at the Utah Festival Opera Box Office in the Dansante Building.
