“Kiss Me Kate” is a Cole Porter musical that takes place in Baltimore, where a theater troupe is putting on a performance. Egotistical leading man Fred Graham is reunited with this ex-wife Lilli Vanessi when the two are forced to play opposite one another in Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. It becomes clear that as much as they profess to hate each other, they are still very much in love. The show also has gangsters, mistaken identities, and romantic entanglements.
“Kiss Me, Kate” has something for everyone including comedy, romance, drama, and suspense. The show is presented by the Dominican College Aquin Players and directed by James Filippelli. For more information, call 845-848-4034.
