Dueling Critics: ‘Kiss Me Kate’

Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew factors heavily into “Kiss Me, Kate.” Cole Porter’s play-within-a-play is not only an adaptation of the classic, but is actually about a theatre company putting on a production of Taming of the Shrew. Dueling Critics Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Abarbanel weigh in on Circle Theatre’s rendition of the musical.

Jonathan’s picks of the week:

Peter Pan” at The Looking Glass Theatre through January 23.
A Christmas Carol” at The Goodman through December 31.

Kelly’s pick of the week:

Pancake Breakfast” at The New Colony through December 19.
