Lent Week 2
Kiss Me, Kate centres on the production of a musical version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and the on and off-stage tensions between Fred Graham, the show's director, producer, and star, and his leading lady and ex-wife Lilli Vanessi. As the musical progresses, the lives of the actors begin to mirror the action of the plot, and the lines between backstage and on-stage are blurred. A secondary romance concerns Lois Lane, the actress playing Bianca, and her gambler boyfriend, Bill, who runs afoul of some gangsters. Kiss Me, Kate is a fun, frothy and fizzy romantic comedy that's too darn hot to handle!
