Kiss Me Kate

Loosely based on the Taming of the Shrew, this musical manages to insert a load of great somgs – many of which I had no idea were from this play – Another Opeing, Wunderbar, Brush up Your Shakespeare, It’s too Darn Hot … the list goes on.
As a musical, it was great. Dated but great.
Juan Chioran was excellent, althouogh I still always think of Dracula every time I see him.

    I am not a big fan of musicals, and this one is a bit creaky, but the songs are great, music and lyrics – Porter was really flying! (Cole, not the airline.)The cast did a wonderful job too; Monique Lund and Juan Chioran most noticeably, of course, but Mike jackson, Chilina Kennedy and the rest of the cast were all strong too.Good fun.
