Kiss Me Kate
Artist: Kathryn Grayson
Format: DVD

More Info:

When two squabbling ex-marrieds are cast as squabbling Renaissance romantics in a musical The Taming of the Shrew, life imitates art and art imitates life. It all proves no musical comedy imitates Kiss Me Kate, the backstage/onstage delight from the 1948 Broadway smash, featuring 14 peerless Cole Porter songs. Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson are the tangled twosome "So in Love" despite her "I Hate Men" flash points. Ann Miller adds heat, razzle-tap-dazzling in "Too Darn Hot" and wowing "Tom, Dick or Harry" (Bob Fosse, Tommy Rall, Bobby Van). Fosse and Hermes Pan provide zesty choreography under George Sidney's nimble direction. So "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" and enjoy. Kate won't just kiss you. She'll floor you.
