She Said, She Said: Asheville Community Theatre’s Kiss Me Kate

“Kiss Me Kate” runs on Friday and Saturday evenings with a Sunday matinee through June 30th.  This Cole Porter musical opened on Broadway in 1948 and it earned the Tony for Best Musical.  The story within a story weaves together a musical production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew with the on and off-stage relationship between Fred Graham, (played by John C. Hall) the show’s director, producer, and star, and his leading lady, his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi (played by Wendy Morrison.) Mother-daughter reviewers Becky Upham and Cicely Upham discuss the local production.
