Kiss Me Kate
  • London Fringe

Award-winning director, Trevor Nunn returns to The Old Vic to direct the dazzling, Tony award-winning, Broadway classic, Kiss Me, Kate.

Featuring music and lyrics by Cole Porter, including Too Darn Hot, Brush up your Shakespeare and Another Op'nin, Another Show, this exuberant show-within-a-show throws together gun-toting gangsters, sparring actors and romantic entanglements against a backdrop of a musical production of Taming of the Shrew.

Trevor Nunn returns to The Old Vic following the success of Inherit the Wind, Richard II and Hamlet. He was the Artistic Director of the RSC and the National Theatre and has directed in the West End, on Broadway and for film and television. He has directed most of the Shakespeare canon, and other credits include Flare Path, A Little Night Music, Porgy and Bess, Anything Goes, My Fair Lady, Oklahoma!, Les Misťrables and Cats.

The cast includes Alex Bourne, David Burt, Adam Garcia, Clive Rowe and Hannah Waddingham, with choreography by Stephen Mear.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
