Kiss Me, Kate

(The Clocktower Centre)

The Clocktower Centre and Co-Opera are delighted to present KISS ME, KATE by Cole Porter who wrote this now legendary musical version of Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. KISS ME, KATE is one of the most famous musical ‘adaptations’ of Shakespeare for the stage and screen.

Co-Opera’s production of KISS ME, KATE is based on the recently revised version, which re-instates much of the original script that was prudishly cut from the 1948 stage production and the 1953 film. Co-Opera’s version has more of the swagger and bawdiness of Shakespeare’s time; it reflects our own times too, such as including a saucy spanking scene!
