Throw in a couple of gun-toting gangsters as comic relief, and some great dance numbers — and “Kate” has all the ingredients for a hit. Unfortunately, it’s the 1940s-era humor and unconvincing romantic entanglements which now seem rather tame at the least — and way too obvious at best. Happily, Dolores Duran-Cefalu’s sharp musical direction of a first-rate orchestra brings nearly every one of Porter’s hits to life. Granted, it will be people over 60 who actually remember most of the songs, but they are timeless classics that deserve to be played (and sung). There’s “So in Love,” “Too Darn Hot,” “Another Op’nin’ Another Show,” “Wunderbar,” “Always True to You (In My Fashion),” “From This Moment On” and more.

The songs alone — coupled with some excellent vocals from several of the actors — are almost worth the price of admission, Almost, Certainly director Milissa Carey has the musical theater cred to pull off this production (she’s directed “Sunday in the Park with George,—South Pacific” and “Little Shop of Horrors,” among numerous others), Yet the plot plods wearily on — and on, Sometimes even the musical numbers ballet slippers tote bag-embroidered dance bag-handmade gift-personalized bag-monogrammed tote bag-pink girl bag go on too long (the lethargic “Why Can’t You Behave?” for one), and even the terminal cuteness of the two would-be thespian gangsters (loveable Ray D’Ambrosio as Second Man” and more-subdued Ken Boswell as First Man) take maybe one too many curtain calls in their spotlight number, “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”..

The show’s opening number, while lengthy, gives the audience the opportunity to revel in the talent of some incredible singers and dancers: clear-voiced Jessica Coker as Hattie, dancing dynamo Isaiah Boyd as Paul, and Zach Padlo as Bill Calhoun (in the play-within-a-play, he is Lucentio). Naturally the musical’s two main characters, Lilli/Katherine and Fred/Petruchio, have the most stage time as the feuding couple on and off stage. Both have their impressive moments, and raven-haired Amie Shapiro, as Lilli, has the best voice in the large cast. She also shows the perfect amount of feistiness and sass for the dual role.

As Fred, Daniel Cameron is a little more difficult to evaluate, In Act 1, he seems rather bland, only coming alive during his duet with Shapiro (“Wunderbar”), But in Act 2, he gets an opportunity to show more depth which at least partially absolves him, Act 2 also has a spectacular opening number featuring Boyd and a high-energy ensemble that pulls out all the stops for “Too Darn Hot.” Choreographer Nicole ballet slippers tote bag-embroidered dance bag-handmade gift-personalized bag-monogrammed tote bag-pink girl bag Helfer gets credit for that lively gift, as well as several other occasions when the dancers cut loose (especially the four men doing acrobatic/gymnastic dancing)..

While Jon Hayward’s sound is top-notch and can easily be heard even in the back of the large theater, Andrew Kaufman’s scenic design leaves a lot to be desired. At times, it looked unfinished; at the least, it just doesn’t seem large enough to fit the stage. (On opening night there were several scene change malfunctions to boot.). A couple of other actors deserve mention. As Lois Lane/Bianca, Leah Shesky looks terrific, sings well, yet there’s something slightly off in her performance. Perhaps it’s the ill-fitting blond wig she’s wearing, but more likely it’s the fact that she looks at the audience when saying her lines rather than speaking to the person with whom she’s sharing a stage. It just looks phony.

Doug Brook is always credible as both ballet slippers tote bag-embroidered dance bag-handmade gift-personalized bag-monogrammed tote bag-pink girl bag Harry Trevor and, later, Baptista, and Rich Matli has a few funny bits as Ralph, the harassed stage manager, Then there’s David Schiller at Lilli’s new beau, a military man named Harrison Howell, Schiller mugs and exaggerates in every scene he’s in, And what’s with the way-oversized corncob pipe?, Costume designer Valerie Emmi did right by just about every actor except Shapiro, Most of Shapiro’s outfits — especially the Kate costumes — fit her about as well as a paper sack, On the plus side, Michael Ramsaur did his usual excellent job with the lighting — no small feat in the two high-walled backstage dressing room scenes..

The husband-and-wife singer-songwriters, Greg Attonito and Shanti Wintergate, began performing kids’ music while promoting their children’s book, “I Went For A Walk,” in 2007. Wintergate had written the story. Attonito was on the road with his punk-rock band, The Bouncing Souls. “I was whining about wanting to do other projects, while I was on tour,” he says. “Shanti said, ‘Why don’t you illustrate the story?'”. He did. And the results charmed adults and children alike. They realized that using their musical talents could enhance the book tour. They brought their guitars, played a few songs. Response was enthusiastic.

As they toured around the country on the book tour, Attonito was struck by the lack of arts education, music in particular, in school systems, “It blew ballet slippers tote bag-embroidered dance bag-handmade gift-personalized bag-monogrammed tote bag-pink girl bag my mind how that’s disappearing, The support for music programs, for art programs is just not there, When I was growing up in the ’70s, we had a music teacher in school, It’s crazy to see it being tossed out, like we don’t really need it, So that was even more inspiration for putting music out for kids, It’s needed now more than ever.”..
