Audiences brush up their Shakespeare in the new Roundabout Theatre Company production of the Cole Porter musical comedy starring Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara and Will Chase as an embattled husband-and-wife acting team appearing in “The Taming of the Shrew,” a show that not surprisingly mirrors their offstage antics. The Porter score includes such classic tunes as “Wunderbar,” “So in Love,” “Always True to You (in My Fashion)” and “Why Can’t You Behave,” among others.
TRIVIA: The original production of “Kiss Me, Kate” won the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical (1949).
