We host a Movie Night every couple of months at our home in Poway. If you like old movies and enjoy the company of our friends, contact Katie Tucker or Mary Ann Horton on Facebook to be included on our invitation list.
Feb 22 (5-10 PM) Kiss Me Kate
Join us for this classic Play turned Musical within a Broadway Musical turned Movie Musical, featuring lyrics by Cole Porter, dance by Ann Miller, the birth of Bob Fosse’s choreography, and a plot based on William Shakespeare.
A mislabeled bouquet of flowers, a pair of mobsters, a big-headed rancher, and some good old fashioned narcissism conspire to make the divorce of two Shakespearean actors a lot less amicable. Will “The Taming of the Shrew” ever be the same?
Divorced Broadway stars Fred Graham (Howard Keel) and Lilli Vanessi (Kathryn Grayson) agree to star in a musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” alongside rising young actors Lois Lane (Ann Miller) and Bill Calhoun (Tommy Rall). Backstage complications pile up due to a romantic misunderstanding between Fred and the soon-to-be-remarried Lilli, while Bill’s gambling debts cause a pair of lunkheaded mobsters (Keenan Wynn, James Whitmore) to become part of the show.
