Austin Shakespeare presents Songs from Kiss Me, Kate
Songs from Cole Porter’s delightful musical Kiss Me, Kate, performed by some of Austin’s best singers, will benefit Austin Shakespeare. Jill Blackwood, Leslie Bonnell, Sharron Bower Anderson, and Jacqui Cross will sing with Brian Coughlin, Colum Morgan, Kyle Stephens, and Scott Shipman. The evening will also feature Tapestry Artistic Director Acia Gray tap-dancing to “Too Darn Hot.” Austin Chronicle Arts Editor Robert Faires will be master of ceremonies for the evening.
Kiss Me, Kate is the story of a touring company staging Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, with a divorced couple in the leads who banter with both comedy and romance through their songs.
