1977 - 1978

Kiss Me, Kate

Fred Graham, an actor, director, and producer is opening a musical production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew in Baltimore.  In the cast are his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi, his current love interest, Lois Lane, and her former night-club partner Bill Calhoun.

The personal interrelationships of these actors are further complicated but eventually resolved during the somewhat chaotic opening night performance of the Shakespearean classic.
