The musical of the famous American composer Cole Porter, "Kiss me, Ket!" Stood on more than a thousand performances on Broadway and over 400 - in London, not for nothing.
This is an extremely interesting and fascinating story about the actors working in the theater on the production of "Tendering Stupid" by W. Shakespeare.
The uniqueness of this story is that the characters of the musical are experiencing the same events as the Shakespeare characters that they play on the stage. The young director will have to make a lot of effort, connect fantasy and ingenuity, to earn the attachment of his jealous and temperamental lover.
The principle of theater production in the theater allows the viewer to look behind the scenes and see the behind-the-scenes intrigues, the prima donna rivalry, official novels and, of course, scenic curiosities! Actors just on the scene find out personal relationships: a scandal closes, the curtain falls, the conductor tries to save the situation with high-volume music, but the noise and cries give out a backstage fights ...
Exclusive translation of the Broadway original retains all humor, dramatic saturation and juicy American performance. The bright costumes made by the well-known Lithuanian artist Vilma Galjakcaite-Dabkiene for the National Operetta, and complex scenery-transformers delicately convey the character of the entire production. And to keep the author's score, the theater bought an English horn.
The premiere of the musical in the National Operetta was held in June 2013. The play is popular with the capital's public, as evidenced by positive reviews and constant sales outlets.
