I did Kiss Me Kate in 1994 with very good results. Audiences love it,
especially the Brush Up Your Shakespeare number.

I have directed KISS ME KATE within the past three years and i don't
think it holds. It's cute but it's not really Shakespeare. Look at "Your
Own Thing" which I believe is a musical adapt of "12th night"(I'm sure
I'll be corrected if I'm wrong).....The RSC has a really cute musical
revue call THE SHAKESPEARE REVUE which might be fun..I thought it clever
and they have it in script form and the CD is available through their
shop  on the Internet )The best musical is probably "The Boys from
Syracuse" Comedy of Errors. It seems to hold and has some nice tunes in
it.
