First look: Kiss Me, Kate revival with Adrian Dunbar and Stephanie J. Block

New production images have been released from Kiss Me, Kate’s new London revival, playing at the Barbican until 14 September 2024 for a strictly limited season.

Starring in Kiss Me, Kate will be the multi-award-winning Adrian Dunbar and Broadway musical Superstar and Tony Award Winner Stephanie J. Block  making her West End debut.

Also on the cast will be Olivier nominee Charlie Stemp as Bill Calhoun/Lucentio, rising star Georgina Onuorah as Lois Lane/Bianca and Peter Davison as the General. Joining them are Nigel Lindsay and Hammed Animashaun.

This musical farce, which brilliantly showcases Cole Porter’s razor-sharp wit, has won Best Musical at the Tony Awards.

It’s a sophisticated, ferociously funny, show within a show – which whisks you into a world of backstage chaos and romantic entanglements as a theatre company attempt to put on a production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.
