In The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare puts Kate and Petruchio’s marital power struggles under a microscope. There, he finds humor magnified amid the imbalance of powers in their gender roles. She makes it clear that no man is worthy, so her father marries her off to Petruchio, who then sets about to “tame” her. As topical as it is hilarious, The Taming of the Shrew is a rollicking romantic comedy with enduring themes that have influenced generations of popular entertainment, from the musical Kiss Me, Kate to the teen movie Ten Things I Hate About You. Our Founding Artistic Director Ian Gallanar will direct Shrew.
