Broadway in Annapolis: Kiss Me Kate
Presented by Live Arts Maryland

Ernest Green and the Annapolis Chorale bring the magic of Broadway to Annapolis.  For more than a decade, the “Broadway in Annapolis” series has presented Broadway’s finest musicals, always with an emphasis on the music as it was written by the composers.  From the classics of Rodgers & Hammerstein to “Guys & Dolls, “Sweeney Todd” and “The Secret Garden,” Mr. Green, the Annapolis Chorale, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and talented casts of singer/actors - including both local and Broadway performers - continue to give America’s favorite art form energy, vitality and spark. 

With Cole Porter’s signature wit and catchy tunes, "Kiss Me, Kate" has been a hit on Broadway and on film. Written by Samuel and Bella Spewack, life imitates art in this story of the volatile relationships within an acting company performing William Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew." Stars Fred and Lili (and their Shakespearian alter egos Petruchio and Katharine) battle it out in the name of love and independence. This musical includes such memorable songs as Why Can’t You Behave, Another Op’nin’ Another Show, So in Love and Brush Up Your Shakespeare, just to name a few! Broadway in Annapolis productions are all about the music so you’ll see and hear the Annapolis Chorale and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra as well as a super cast of talented actors.

Students may attend free using Live Arts Maryland’s special Student Rush program by visiting the box office a half-hour prior to curtain.  Students 18 and up must present a valid ID to receive a ticket.
