"they could write a new show."

Which is exactly what I was suggesting. And what I think would be interesting to do with the characters and plot of KISS ME KATE. There isn't much one can do with these shows as they exist and we've seen that rewriting doesn't really help KISS ME KATE, so why not write a new show that's a contemporary response to CALL ME MADAM or KISS ME KATE. Let's examine who these characters are, either in the 21st Century or even who they really would have been in their own time periods with some real writing that puts thought into characters and storytelling in a way that was not thought necessary when these shows were written. (And, to be fair, who's really coming to the theatre for a sensible plot and characters who exist in some kind of reality when you have Ethel Merman singing Irving Berlin songs.)
