Kiss Me Kate

Ten WI ladies went to see Kiss Me Kate at the Old Vic last month.  We had excellent seats, thanks to Frieda picking them personally for us and though she did not lay on complementary ice-creams in the interval, we all agreed it was a very good evening.  I for one, had not realised how many wonderful Cole Porter songs were in the production, and my foot was tapping throughout.  At our performance, the leading lady was unwell, and it was with rather a sinking feeling that we viewed the notices pinned around the foyer, saying her understudy would be taking her place.  We need not have worried, she was a star and the audience and the cast gave her an uproarious “well done” at her curtain call.
