Kiss Me, Kate

From the Producer of hit musical Anything Goes, also at the Barbican, comes a new production of __Cole Porter’s__ *Kiss Me, Kate*, starring the multi award-winner __Adrian Dunbar__ (*Ridley, Line of Duty*) and Broadway Royalty and Tony Award Winner __Stephanie J. Block__ (*Into The Woods, The Cher Show, 9 to 5*) making her West End debut. The pair are joined by Olivier nominee __Charlie Stemp__ (*Crazy For You, Mary Poppins*), rising star __Georgina Onuorah__ (*The Wizard of Oz, Oklahoma*), __Nigel Lindsay__ (*Victoria, Shrek The Musical*) and __Hammed Animashaun__ (*A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Black Ops*). This new production is directed by __Bartlett Sher__ (*The King and I, South Pacific and To Kill A Mockingbird*) and choreographed by __Anthony Van Laast__ (*Mamma Mia!, Sister Act, Hair*). With a company of over 50 including a full-scale orchestra and featuring Cole Porter classics such as *Another Op'nin', Another Show, Brush Up Your Shakespeare* and *Tom, Dick or Harry, Kiss Me, Kate* is the perfect Summer musical for 2024. *Kiss Me, Kate* is the original farce and whisks you into a world of backstage chaos and romantic entanglements. With Cole Porter’s razor-sharp wit, it’s ‘The ultimate Broadway musical from the golden age’ (Financial Times) and is Broadway musical comedy meets Shakespeare meets Noises Off. __Assisted Performances__
