Gifted director Darko Tresnjak has turned Cole Porter's iconic musical into "Kate's Revenge." The excellent Anastasia Barzee sings the great songs and goes on a codpiece-bash and scores many a palpable hit. Porter (and Shakespeare) wrote in code. The production decodes the text with a brassy, unfettered swagger. Though almost too loud at times, the voices are excellent (especially Mike McGowan's Fred/Petrruccio, and Megan Sikora's Bianca/Lous Lane), and the physical shtick is tops. And Peggy Hickey's choreography of "Too Darn Hot" is a scorcher. Critic's Pick.
