Regina native and former Lyric performer Kyle Golemba is part of the cast of Tony Award-winning director John Doyle’s new production of Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate, which opened Tuesday at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival.
Kiss Me, Kate, which Lyric staged in 1991 with Colin Grewar and Crystal Hanson in the lead roles, is a musical comedy about backstage romance during a musical production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. The libretto is by Sam and Bella Spewack. The Porter score includes “So In Love,” “Too Darn Hot” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”
