Comment:        Re: SHK 8.1244  Q: *Kiss Me Kate*

I remember seeing a musical version of Two Gentlemen of Verona in the
late 60's-even owned an original cast recording at the time.  Can't
remember a blessed thing about it except the 2 gentlemen w/ serious
bell-bottoms and 'fros-but not if they were of men of color or just in
costume.  I *Think* it was a pre-Broadway trial at the Shubert in New
Haven, but my brain fails me.

I still adore Kiss Me Kate, but I'm old enough to remember having seen
it on LIVE TV as a child in the '50's-probably w/ Drake in the lead
role.

Yours,
Marilyn B.
