Kiss Me, Kate is a musical written by Bella and Samuel Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The story involves the production of a musical version of William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and the conflict on and off-stage between Fred Graham, the show's director, producer, and star, and his leading lady, his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi. A secondary romance concerns Lois Lane, the actress playing Bianca, and her gambler boyfriend, Bill, who runs afoul of some gangsters.

No less an authority than Frank Sinatra considered Cole Porter one of the greatest songwriters of all time, and he generally remembered more as a composer of songs than a composer of musicals. That is, most folks can remember Porter's songs instantly, but couldn't for the life of them remember where they came from. It is, in fact, as Porter put it, "Wunderbar" that Sony has released a remastered version of the musical's original cast recording with Alfred Drake and Patricia Morison in the leads, in performances that are essentially definitive. Drake's "I've Come to Wive it Wealthily in Padua" and Morison's "I Hate Men," are unsurpassed for self-conscious humor, and their duets together are unequalled for passion and irony, which is not an easy combination to pull off.
