Kiss Me, Kate

October 18-27, 2013

Take the music of Cole Porter, Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew," a pompous director, a temperamental leading lady, singers, dancers, and a pair of stage-struck gangsters. Then put it all together, behind the scenes of a Broadway musical! What do you get? The long-demanded, never-produced Kavli Theatre premiere of the beloved classic, KISS ME KATE! Winner of numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical in 1949 and Best Revival over fifty years later, KISS ME KATE is considered by many to feature Cole Porter's best score, and includes "Too Darn Hot," "Another Opening, Another Show," "Brush Up Your Shakespeare," "So In Love Am I," and "Wunderbar," to name just a few. Perfect for all ages, KISS ME KATE will provide the lynchpin for Cabrillo's educational outreach program. Full of rich characters, broad and sophisticated comedy, and dazzling dance, KISS ME KATE will provide the perfect start to Cabrillo's 2013-2014 season.

In the Heights

March 28th-April 6th, 2014
IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in Manhattan's Washington Heights - a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
