2008 digitally remastered and expanded edition of the soundtrack to the motion picture classic featuring all 14 tracks from the original soundtrack plus 12 bonus tracks performed by Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson. Inspired by The Taming of the Shrew, Kiss Me Kate tells the tale of two once-married, now-divorced musical theater actors, Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi, who are performing opposite each other in the roles of Petruchio and Katharina in a Broadway-bound musical version of William Shakespeare's play. Already on poor terms, the pair begin an all-out emotional war mid-performance that threatens the production's success. The only thing keeping the show together are threats from a pair of gangsters, who have come to collect a gambling debt from the show's Lucentio, Bill Calhoun. In classic musical comedy fashion, slapstick madness ensues before everything is resolved. Music Digital.
