Kiss Me, Kate


Darryl Reuben Hall as the maniacally talented dresser and dancer,

Paul; and Whit Reichert as Harry and Baptista. St. Louis favorites Joneal Joplin

and Steve Isom are hilarious as the two literary gangsters; their "Brush Up Your

Shakespeare" is the comic high point of a very funny show.

Director Victoria Bussert keeps the traffic flowing smoothly on the busy stage;

Ralph Perkins creates lively and entertaining dance numbers, especially the

second-act opener, "Too Darn Hot," which Mr. Hall sets ablaze. Costume

designer Dorothy Marshall Englis outdoes herself with brilliant colors and

fanciful takes on Italian Renaissance outfits for the inner play and genuinely nifty

clothes for the "real" characters, especially the two gangsters and General

Harrison Howell.
