Finish out this amazing night with dessert and coffee. You won't want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime evening! Black tie optional. Space is limited.

“Kiss Me, Kate” - Combine Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew with Cole Porter's music and lyrics to get Kiss Me, Kate a fun, melodious and sophisticated musical. This play-within-a-play shows each cast member's on-stage life becoming complicated by events happening offstage. Musical numbers include Why Can't You Behave, So In Love Am I, Wunderbar, and Brush Up Your Shakespeare. Winner of five Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Produced Show, Best Script, Best Score and Best Costumes, it was originally produced in 1948 and has long been considered one of Broadway's treasures.
