Kiss Me, Kate

The critical consensus

Sparky, energetic and seriously good fun.

****(*)Thom Dibdin, All Edinburgh Theatre, 05/07/2108

The cast are top class; as are the musicians. The set changes are as slick as the direction and choreography. And the humour is bawdy, but perfectly pitched. However, it is the genius of Cole Porter’s music and lyrics which elevate the two hours and fifty minutes of song and dance from hot to “Too Darn Hot”.

****(*)Peter Callaghan, Review Sphere, 05/07/2018

Above all, the great music superbly played by the orchestra and backed by a fine chorus will keep you happy right to the very end.

****(*)Hugh Kerr, The Wee Review, 06/07/2018
