Are you tired of New York’s cold winter weather? Well, have no fear because things are about to get hot. “Too Darn Hot,” in fact. NYU Steinhardt’s program in Vocal Performance is bringing Cole Porter's mega hit Broadway musical, Kiss Me Kate' to Frederick Loewe Theatre. The beloved musical was a “spanking” success winning the very first Tony Award for Best Musical in 1949. 'Kiss Me Kate' is based off and revolves around William Shakespeare’s 'The Taming of the Shrew', with the story taking place during a production of the classic play.
For all the bogus boilerplate about how classical music is dead or even well-intentioned words regarding how she can stay breathing, precious few--performers, ensembles and institutions--are actually doing anything to change both conversation and prognosis. Moreover, when it comes to remounting baroque opera in our digi-epoch, fewer still have the informed perspective, due diligence and, well, cojones to really make a difference. Save for one R.B. Schlather, of course.
