Stars of Kiss Me Kate, Zoe Rainey and Stephanie Corley, which opens at the London Coliseum next week, popped into The Theatre Cafe for a chat with Nicky Sweetland.

Set both on and off-stage during the production of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew, this show revolves around the tempestuous love lives of actor-manager Fred Graham and his leading lady (and ex-wife) Lilli Vanessi, whom are preparing for the opening night.
Throw in Fred’s current paramour Lois Lane, her gambler boyfriend Bill – and a couple of gangsters who somehow get caught up in the show – and the stage is set for a funny and farcical battle of the sexes!
A charming homage to the sparkling wit of Shakespeare and an irresistible celebration of the joy and madness of working in theatre, Cole Porter’s witty, jazz-inflected score features hit after hit, with show-stopping numbers including ‘Another Op’nin’ Another Show,’ ‘Brush Up Your Shakespeare,’ ‘Always True to You in My Fashion’ and ‘Too Darn Hot.’
Bringing together performers from the worlds of both opera and the West End, with the incredible sound of the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North the magical sound of Broadway and the golden age of MGM musicals springs back to life on the London Coliseum stage.
