Kelli O'Hara and Will Chase to star in Broadway's 'Kiss Me, Kate'

June 30 (UPI) — Kelli O’Hara and Will Chase are set to star in the Broadway revival of the classic musical comedy, Kiss Me, Kate.

The Roundabout Theatre Company production is scheduled to begin preview performances Feb. 14 at Studio 54, with an official opening planned for March 14.

The show is about the backstage shenanigans of a touring production of William Shakespeare’s play The Taming of the Shrew. It features a book by Sam and Bella Spewack; music and lyrics by Cole Porter; direction by Scott Ellis; choreography by Warren Carlyle; and music direction by Paul Gemignani.

“Roundabout welcomes back longtime friends of the theater; Tony winner Kelli O’Hara who was nominated for her role in the 2006 revival of The Pajama Game opposite Harry Connick, Jr. and Will Chase returns to Roundabout following his Tony nominated role in 2012 revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. In 2016, O’Hara and Chase also starred in a sold-out benefit concert reading of Kiss Me, Kate directed by Scott Ellis,” said a news release from Roundabout.
