Trevor Nunn returns to the Old Vic to direct Cole Porter’s multi-award winning musical, Kiss Me, Kate.

Featuring the songs Too Darn Hot, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, Another Op’nin’, Another Show, So In Love Am I and Always True To You (In My Fashion), Kiss Me, Kate is an exuberant show within a show, bringing together the worlds of gun-wielding gangsters, sparring actors and Shakespeare’s original characters from The Taming Of The Shrew.

The cast of Kiss Me, Kate includes musical theatre stars Alex Bourne (We Will Rock You, Chicago, Grease), David Burt (Les Misérables, Cats, Evita), Adam Garcia (Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Wicked), Hannah Waddingham (The Wizard Of Oz, Monty Python’s Spamalot, Into The Woods) and Clive Rowe (The Ladykillers, Fantasticks, Chicago).

Kiss Me, Kate features choreography by Olivier Award-winning Stephen Mear.
