"THE ORIGINAL SOUVLAKI"

on the book for Kiss Me, Kate, but she
insisted they both get credit for it."
Frankel has directed more than 100
plays and musicals, taught theater arts at
10 different universities and colleges,
and now is a New York University fac-
ulty member. His books include Writing
the Broadway Musical (DaCapo, 2000).
Kiss Me, Kate was an ingenious piece
of work by Bella and Cole," he says.
She juxtaposed the basic plot of Shrew
with the tribulations of the unhappy
couple as they appear in a revival of the
comedy. As the plot of Shrew unfolds
on stage, the offstage scenes develop
their turbulent romance.
"In this way, Kate follows the pattern
of Shrew, which also used the device of
a play within a play."
Shrew had been the working title of
the musical, until the producers discov-
ered that Porter had written the words
"Kiss Me, Kate" on some sheet music as
possible lyrics.
"Porter's score is an example of what
he meant when he said he had to 'write
Jewish tunes' to be successful," Frankel
points out.
Cole Porter: a Biography, by William
McBrien (Alfred A. Knopf, New York,
1998), tells how Porter reacted to critical
newspaper reviews of his songs by the
Brooklyn Jewish Examiner in 1926.
He told Richard Rodgers that, in
order to have hits, "I'll write Jewish

COUPON ---- a

tunes." The biography describes "Jewish
tunes" as shifting from major to minor
keys and using the interval of a step-
and-a-half.
Rodgers later said: "I laughed at what
I took to be a joke, but ... Cole did
exactly that. Just hum 'My Heart
Belongs to Daddy,' or 'I Love Paris,' or
`Easy to Love', or the line, 'Only you
beneath the moon and under the sun
[from 'Night and Day].
"It's one of the ironies of the musical
theater that, despite the abundance of
Jewish composers, the one who has writ-
ten the most enduring 'Jewish' music
should be an Episcopalian millionaire."
Porter's major Jewish songwriting
rivals were Rodgers, George Gershwin,
Jerome Kern and Irving Berlin.
Porter and Berlin were fierce competi-
tors, but respected each other. Whenever
one would score a hit song, he would
receive a letter of congratulations and
high praise from the other. Porter had a
crippling horseback riding accident in
1937 and died at 73 in 1964. ❑
