One thing I will mention having seen "Kiss Me Kate" on the matinee before the Tony broadcast - Sam Strasfeld's bushy beard looked very appropriate for a 15th century Italian peasant in the musical within the musical if not for a 40's chorus boy in the main story. (Also Strasfeld threw in an impressively acrobatic aerial corkscrew jump in the Tony telecast) I watched the MGM movie recently and noted that Howard Keel as Fred Graham is clean shaven in 50's style offstage and wears a fake goattee as Petruchio in the show within a show. Though after the age of 35 or so, the Broadway original Alfred Drake nearly always sported a mustache and beard.
