January 6, 2023: BroadwayHD, the premier streaming service for live theatre, announced that they will be bringing the 1999 revival of Cole Porter’s masterpiece, Kiss Me Kate to their platform for a exclusive worldwide release on January 15, 2023. The charming musical comedy, winner of five Tony Awards® and recipient of 8 Olivier Award nominations was filmed during its West End run.The romantic comedy starring Broadway veterans Brent Barrett and Rachel York, centers around the hilarious misadventures both on and off the stage between a pair of squabbling couples during a production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.
Set on opening night, the tempestuous love lives of actor-manager Fred Graham (Brent Barrett) and his leading lady – and ex-wife – Lilli Vanessi (Rachel York) are set to collide. Troubles worsen when Fred’s current lover, Lois Lane (Nancy Anderson), her gambler boyfriend Bill (Michael Berresse), and a set of gun-toting gangsters are added to the mix – resulting in a hilarious battle of the sexes. Kiss Me Kate, directed by Michael Blakemore and featuring a book from Sam and Bella Spewack, features 18 classic Cole Porter songs, including “Another Op’nin’, Another Show,” “Wunderbar,” “So in Love,” “Always True to You in My Fashion,” “Too Darn Hot,” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”
