About the event

To be or not to be…in love. That’s the question in the star-packed, sizzling new production of Cole Porter’s legendary musical comedy KISS ME KATE.

Fall “so in love” with your leading couple: multi-award-winner Adrian Dunbar (Line of Duty, Ridley) and Tony Award-winning Broadway royalty Stephanie J. Block (Into The Woods, The Cher Show) in her West End debut. This dynamite duo head the summer’s hottest cast alongside Olivier nominee Charlie Stemp (Crazy For YouMary Poppins), Georgina Onuorah (The Wizard of OzOklahoma), Nigel Lindsay (Victoria, Shrek The Musical), Hammed Animashaun (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Black Ops) and Peter Davison (Dr Who, All Creatures Great and Small).

From Cole Porter, the composer of the recent smash hit Anything Goes, this new production is directed by Bartlett Sher (The King and I, South Pacific), choreographed by Anthony Van Laast (Mamma Mia!, Sister Act) with costume design from Catherine Zuber (Moulin Rouge).

With backstage shenanigans, Shakespearean sonnets and singing  gangsters – not to mention a romance that’s just too darn hot – and a  full-scale orchestra performing the Cole Porter classics Brush Up Your Shakespeare, Too Darn Hot, Always True To You (In my Fashion) and Tom, Dick or Harry, this might be another op’nin’, but it certainly ain’t just another show!

It’s all here in the all-zinging, all-dancing musical comedy that raises its curtain from 4 June. Hailed as ‘the ultimate Broadway musical from the golden age’ (Financial Times), KISS ME KATE is a simple love story…about two people who just can’t stand each other. Guess who wins…
