Hosted by Executive Producer and Artistic Director David Armstrong, Spotlight Night gives you an inside look at upcoming 5th Avenue productions. Kiss Me, Kate, inspired by The Taming of the Shrew, is only one of the many Broadway musicals that have been adapted from the timeless works of William Shakespeare. Rodgers and Hart, Leonard Bernstein, Galt MacDermot, John Guare and Stephen Sondheim have all taken on the challenge of bringing “the Bard” to Broadway. With the help of some of the Northwest’s best singers we’ll take a look at such shows as The Boys from Syracuse, West Side Story, Oh, Brother!, The Two Gentlemen of Verona and more. If music be the food of love, play on!
We will also review the history of Kiss Me, Kate, meet the cast and creative team for this new exciting production, and discuss the contemporary issues and challenges of presenting any version of The Taming Of The Shrew.
