The stage production, with book by John Weidman, music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., is based on the motion picture of the same name starring Tom Hanks that was released in 1988.

“Kiss Me Kate” is basically Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew,” adapted for the stage by Jeremy Sams and featuring music and lyrics by Cole Porter … and audiences at Alhambra Theatre and Dining are in for a double treat with this rollicking battle of the sexes. The music and lyrics are integrated into the script (Porter’s response to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s shows) and the play became Porter’s biggest hit with more than 1,000 performances on Broadway. It won the first-ever Tony Award presented for Best Musical in 1949.
