Eight Essential Videos of Kiss Me, Kate Leading Lady Kelli O’Hara
Tony Award winner and six-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara is back on Broadway leading Rounabout Theatre Company’s revival of Cole Porter’s classic musical Kiss Me, Kate.

1. Recording “Almost Real” from The Bridges of Madison County
2. The Stunning A Cappella “To Build a Home” from The Bridges of Madison County
3. “They Don’t Let You in the Opera” in Concert

7. The Light in the Piazza Title Number on the MDA Telethon from 2005
