Latest West End News

Olivier Award nominee Charlie Stemp and upcoming West End starlet Georgina Onuorah will both appear in the revival of Cole Porter's musical comedy Kiss Me, Kate which will showcase at the Barbican this summer. The duo will join the previously announced pairing of Tony Award winner Stephanie J. Block and Line of Duty's Adrian Dunbar.

Stemp, whose previous stage credits include Crazy For You and Mary Poppins brings his tap-dancing skills into the role of the impulsive gambler Bill Calhoun/Lucentio. Onuorah will take the role of Lois Lane/Bianca.

Commenting on the appointment, Stemp said: “Kiss Me, Kate has always been a favourite show of mine, so to get the chance to return to the West End so soon in this title and specifically opposite Adrian Dunbar, Stephanie J. Block, and Georgina Onuorah is a dream come true.”

Onuorah added: “I am thrilled to be involved in this reimagined Kiss Me, Kate - with a Lois/Bianca that looks like me! Bart Sher is a remarkable director and I am so excited to get working on this beloved musical with this wonderful team.”

Kiss Me Kate is a classic musical comedy farce, directed by Bartlett Sher, and is a show within a show that follows a theatre company in its attempt to stage a production of William Shakespeare's play, The Taming of the Shrew.

Kiss Me, Kate will run for a limited 15-week season at the Barbican Theatre from 4th June – 14th September.
