November 19, 2012, 10:57 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Broadway show Kiss Me, Kate jumps across the pond this autumn for a four-month stint at London's Old Vic Theatre. The Tony award-winning show, directed by acclaimed director Trevor Nunn is a reboot of the Cole Porter Broadway classic.
For those that don't know, Kiss Me, Kate is a show within a show; it centres around a group of actors, a director and a producer putting on a performance of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Conflict, comedy and action come to the fore through the play's director, the star – who happens to be his ex-wife – and the producer. Further colour is added with gangsters, combative actors and romantic ups and downs. It may be set in the forties, but this is a truly timeless musical show that can't possibly disappoint.
The Trevor Nunn version stars Alex Bourne, David Burt, Clive Rowe, Hannah Waddingham and Adam Garcia. Tickets are priced at between £11 and £60 and the show kicks off on 20 November and runs until March.
