Archway Theatre presents Shakespeare's comedy The Taming of the Shrew
with an all-male cast in hilarious Elizabethan style full of bawdy humor and outrageous antics. This side-splitting spectacle of physical comedy and cross-dressing craziness pits the spirited Katherine against the fortune-seeking Petruchio. Most men steer clear of the famously sharp-tongued Katherine, but Petruchio has agreed to woo and marry her as a favor to his old friend Hortensio and to set himself up with her father's wealth. Hortensio is in love with Bianca, Katherine's younger, more beautiful and more popular sister, but the younger sister can only be married after the older one. Katherine's notorious temper has left her without marriage prospects, until Petruchio comes along to "tame" her. Through a series of hilarious hi-jinks, Katherine is bent to her new husband's will and she reappears before her disbelieving family transformed into a new "woman."
