The Tony winner will play the duo roles of Kate and Lilli Vanessi in the show, which features a book by Sam and Bella Spewack; music and lyrics by Cole Porter; direction by Roundabout's Associate Artistic Director Scott Ellis; and choreography by Warren Carlyle.

"Kelli O'Hara is inarguably one of the best actresses in the American theater and a dear friend to Roundabout," Roundabout Artistic Director Todd Haimes said in a statement.

"We have been talking about projects for years and it is particularly thrilling to celebrate her return to Roundabout in a role that will showcase her impeccable range and virtuosic talent as a singer, actress and comedienne, just as she did in our production of The Pajama Game a decade ago."

"Putting together a season is always a puzzle of timing and availability, with Roundabout's particular pendulum swinging among revivals, a commitment to new work and when it's right, musicals. The stars aligned on Kiss Me, Kate -- and we are honored to have my beloved colleagues Scott Ellis, Warren Carlyle and Kelli O'Hara back at Roundabout."

Additional cast members and creative team will be announced soon, the company said.
