Kiss Me, Kate is a long musical — nearly three hours — and at the Lyric it feels its length. But from beyond the grave Cole Porter keeps bailing the production out. There isn't a second-rate tune in the whole show, and that includes "From This Moment On," which Marshall interpolated from the Hollywood score. (Unfortunately she gave it to Lilli and Howell, Lilli's peacock of a fiancé, as an extraneous comic duet in the second act. In the movie it's the occasion for a pas de six featuring, among others, a dazzling young Bob Fosse.) When the show is over, you don't know which of these gems to hum first.
