Bite Me Kate

I will be hitting the road for a few days to ready a musical theatre production of "Kiss Me Kate," Cole Porter's musical based on Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew." Before the soon-to-come onslaught of new travel and rehearsal pix, here is one from my 1993 production to remind everyone what I'm up to.

PETRUCHIO
... Myself am moved to woo thee for my wife.

KATHARINA
Moved! in good time: let him that moved you hither
Remove you hence: I knew you at the first
You were a moveable.

PETRUCHIO
Why, what's a moveable?

KATHARINA
A join'd-stool.

PETRUCHIO
Thou hast hit it: come, sit on me.

KATHARINA
Asses are made to bear, and so are you.

PETRUCHIO
Women are made to bear, and so are you.

(Ouch!)
