REVIEW: 'Kiss Me Kate' on Broadway makes for a pleasurable evening in the company of seasoned theater pros

But Ellis, building on the strengths of his star, Kelli O’Hara, treats the number as an emotional experience, filled with O’Hara’s signature sense of wonder, her pitch-perfect ability to convey a kind of existential gravitas, to make you feel like you’ve never heard that song sung with such existential freight. It’s an unusual start to a musical comedy, but it’s shrewd and it works, especially since that creaky Sam and Bella Spewack book has plenty of pitfalls to worry the woke.
