BLOC Productions presents a refreshing, contemporary and lively interpretation of this award-winning show, inspired by The Taming of the Shrew. Kiss Me, Kate tells the tale of theatre actors Lilli Vanessi and her ex-husband Fred Graham, who are now performing opposite each other as Katherine and Petruchio in a musical version of Shakespeare’s controversial play.

Friction and animosity between Lilli and Fred grow and conflict follows them on and off-stage, threatening the production’s success. The only thing keeping the show together is the threat from an unlikely pair of gangsters, who have come to collect a gambling debt from Bill Calhoun, the show's Lucentio. In true musical comedy fashion, chaos and slapstick madness ensues before everything is resolved!

The Bristol Hippodrome, the city’s very own West End theatre, opened its doors on 16 December 1912 when the curtain rose for the first time on what was generally agreed to be Oswald Stoll’s most magnificent provincial theatre.

It is a superb example of the grand architecture of the late Victorian era and is one of the masterpieces of design by Frank Matcham, the most eminent theatre architect of his time.

Towards the beginning of the century, the theatre staged a variety of acts as a Music Hall. Since then, and due to the fact that it has one of the largest theatre stages in Britain, The Bristol Hippodrome has established itself on the touring circuit for all major musical productions, thus becoming known as Bristol’s West End Theatre.
