SYNOPSIS

 As Fred Graham and Lilli Venessi co-star in a production of Taming of the Shrew, these divorced lovers clash in an epic battle of the sexes during Kiss Me, Kate. The show follows them as they deal with the tensions in their relationship, which translates to their performance on stage.

 

As the two of them try to outwit each other during the show, they discover that their love may not have ended with their divorce. Off-stage, other couples further confuse Fred and Lilli about their feelings for one another.  Add in misplaced mobsters, a surly general, and flashy dance numbers, and Kiss Me, Kate becomes a show that you won’t want to miss!
