LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Monday, November 01, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the official print publisher of many beloved Broadway composers, is thrilled to release a new, expanded edition of the piano/vocal selections songbook from Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate.

The new edition of Kiss Me Kate: Vocal Selections is more comprehensive than any previously available and is beautifully adorned with several pages of color photos and memorabilia from its numerous Broadway, television, and motion picture productions.

The songbook contains 19 of the classic songs (including two numbers originally cut) from Cole Porter's hilarious and tuneful Broadway production, which received countless awards for its original and revival runs in New York and London. Singers and fans of the show will enjoy such memorable tunes as “I Hate Men,” “Tom, Dick or Harry,” “So in Love,” “From This Moment On,” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.”

In addition, the songbook also includes an essay about the history and plot of the show, as well as a personal remembrance from Patricia Morison, who played Kate in the original Broadway run.

Kiss Me Kate: Vocal Selections is now available for $16.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at alfred.com.
