Event description

Description

The Marina del Rey Symphony stages the hit Broadway musical by Cole Porter, Kiss Me, Kate for an unforgettable evening of entertainment.

Winner of five Tony Awards in 1949, including the first ever award for Best Musical, Kiss Me, Kate is a musical masterpiece by composer Cole Porter and authors Sam and Bella Spewack that ran for over 1,000 performances on Broadway when it first premiered. Inspired by Shakespeare, Kiss Me Kate delves into the theme of fraught relationships as it focuses on the on- and off-stage antics of two feuding romantic couples during a touring production of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, plus plot twists involving a pair of unexpectedly erudite gangsters and a megalomaniacal U.S. Army general.
