Caroline Sheen and Matthew McKenna are a sheer delight to behold as the feuding couple whose relationship blurs the lines between life and theatre. Lilli gives as good as she gets in her tiffs with Fred, who is played with an air of consummate superiority by McKenna. What makes these two histrionic egotists bearable is the lush music Mr. Porter has given them.
Their voices more than do justice to these love songs with operatic grandeur, and their canny performances capture the subtle mix of emotions in a love that has been exhausted, without being extinguished. A little less virtuosic, but a scene-stealer in its own way is the soft shoe performance of Brush Up Your Shakespeare from the hapless heavies on the trail of an unpaid debt, played by Cory English and Carl Sanderson.

Kiss me, Kate. With a snappy book by Sam and Bella Spewak, Porter took a backstage story about two egotistical musical comedy performers who were once married to each other and mixed it in with the saga of a new musical based on The Taming of the Shrew that was trying out in Baltimore. I just wish those were by the same people. And they'll all kow-tow, odds Bodkins All kow-tow. In order to make Shakespeare Goes To War work on numerous physical, historical, and psychological levels, Fisher's first trick was to make stunning use of the topography within one of the theatres he has used in the past.
