Music & lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Sam & Bella Spewack
Sponsored by Applied Materials Foundation

Cole Porter challenges us to Brush Up Your Shakespeare, as his modern day troubadours update the Bard's Taming of the Shrew in a classic backstage spoof. Petruchio is directing but is also capturing his own Kate with the help of gangsters who've been bitten by the theatre bug. They've got it bad and you will too, with such favorites as Always True To You Darling in My Fashion,  We Opened in Venice, Too Darned Hot, From This Moment On, Wunderbar, and Why Can't You Behave.

Onstage with the Symphony Silicon Valley orchestra and chorus,  Boadway luminaries Christine Andreas as Lilli/Katharine and Richard White as Fred/Petruchio, along with other national and local musical theater notables, will bring you the music and story of Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate-- In Concert! 

Join us for Another Openin', Another Show!

It's the turn of the century, and Marion, River City's idealistic librarian, captures the heart of Prof. Harold Hill, the traveling salesman and scalawag who has come to town to form the River City Boy's Band -- or so he claims.  Meredith Willson's charmer is filled with great tunes including 76 Trombones, Ya Got Trouble in River City, Goodnight  My Someone, Marion the Librarian, Wells Fargo Wagon and more, with barbershop quartets and Sweet Adelines.

Symphony Silicon Valley, on stage with chorus and lead singers, brings you the music and story of Meredith Willson's irresistible scoundrel, The Music Man -- In Concert!

Frank Loesser's The Most Happy Fella
Friday 8:00 pm March 12, 2010
Saturday 8:00 pm March 13, 2010
Sunday 2:30 pm March 14, 2010

Tony, the Napa Valley's lonely but loveable grape farmer, "wants to get married" to his beautiful Rosabella, a waitress he met in a diner in San Francisco.  Frank Loesser's (Guys & Dolls) old-tech version of on-line speed dating turns into one of the most memorable musical scores ever written. 

Great songs range from the waitress's lament "Oh My Feet" to Joe's paean to the wandering life, "Joey;" from Tony's joyous "Most Happy Fella" to the uproarious "I Made a Fist."  All the farm hands dream about "Standing on the Corner" looking for their own special dish.  A bountiful harvest of great tunes and a wonderful love story. 

Join Broadway in Concert for this ravishing musical. Three performances only, in our exciting concert format with featured singers and full orchestra on stage.
