Runaway Stage Productions presents the Cole Porter classic musical comedy KISS ME KATE from May 11 – June 3, 2012, at the 24th Street Theatre in Sacramento.
Winner of 5 Tony Awards, 6 Drama Desk Awards and 4 Outer Critics Awards including Best Musical Revival, KISS ME KATE's first Broadway revival in nearly 50 years of the musical comedy masterpiece by composer Cole Porter and book writers Sam and Bella Spewack not only enchanted critics and delighted audiences, but went on to triumph as one of the biggest prize winners of the 2000 season.
Taking its inspiration from Shakespeare, this romp recounts the backstage and on-stage antics of two feuding romances during an out-of-town tryout for a musical adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew. Sparkling with 18 classic Cole Porter songs including "Another Op'nin', Another Show," "Wunderbar," "So in Love," "Always True to You in My Fashion," "Too Darn Hot," and "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" this is Broadway musical comedy at its best.
The award winning production team at Runaway Stage Productions opens its production accompanied by a live orchestra - The Runaway Stage Productions Resident Orchestra - for a limited 4 week engagement at the 24th Street Theatre in Sacramento.
KISS ME KATE performs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm, May 6 – June 3, 2011. Contact the Box Office at (916) 207-1226.
