    The screen version of Cole Porter's hit Broadway musical shares all the wit and brightness of the original's showbiz interpretation of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Kiss Me Kate is a musical within a musical -- altogether appropriate, since The Taming of the Shrew is a play within a play. Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson star as a famous Broadway singing team who haven't worked together since their acrimonious divorce. Keel, collaborating with Cole Porter, plans to star in a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew titled "Kiss Me Kate." Both he and Porter agree that only one actress should play the tempestuous Katherine, and that's Grayson. But she isn't buying, especially after discovering that Keel's latest paramour, Ann Miller, is going to be playing Bianca. Virtually all of the play's songs are retained from the Broadway version. –All Movie

He will point out examples of where Shakespeare fudged the facts for dramatic purposes, and he will read specific passages from the plays for illustration.
