Louise Dearman as Bianca in Kiss Me Kate with John Wilson Orchestra at Proms

Following the  success of the semi-staged performance of My Fair Lady at the Proms in 2012, John Wilson returns to perform Cole Porter’s Tony Award-winning musical Kiss Me, Kate. Joining John Wilson and his  Orchestra are Broadway stars Ben Davis/Fred Graham/Petruchio, Alexandra Silber/Lilli Vanessi/Katherine Tony Yazbeck/Bill Calhoun/Lucentio and West End star Louise Dearman/Lois Lane/Bianca performing an  irreverent reworking of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew – a play within a play.
