The Kate

The Kate

THE KATE is a new national music series with artistic cred and a bit of edge, infused with the essence of the unabashed, spirited Katharine Hepburn. The headline-heavy first season features artists who follow the Hepburnian philosophy that "If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun." The intimacy of the venue means that THE KATE performers have a risky closeness to their material--and their audience. Insightful interviews with the performers open each episode, taped live at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, an intimate 250-seat venue in Old Saybrook, Connecticut.
