What’s Happening AROUND TOWN Suncoast July 2017

Pinellas/West Pasco

The story involves the production of a musical version of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew and the conflict on and off-stage between Fred Graham, the show’s director, producer, and star, and his leading lady, his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi. A secondary romance concerns Lois Lane, the actress playing Bianca, and her gambler boyfriend, Bill, who runs afoul of some gangsters. This is a play-within-a-play where each cast member’s on-stage life is complicated by what is happening offstage. Musical hits include “Why Can’t You Behave”, “So In Love Am I”, “Wunderbar”, “Tom, Dick or Harry”, “Were Thine That Special Face”, “Too Darn Hot”, “Brush Up Your Shakespeare”, “I Hate Men”, “Always True to You (In My Fashion)” and “Another Op’nin, Another Show”.
