Shakespeare's Romantic Romp The Taming of the Shrew
A play framed within a play, this witty, fast-paced production of Shakespeare's battle-of-the-sexes classic follows Hortensio, who is head-over-heels in love with Bianca. But her father, the wealthy Italian merchant Baptista Miniola, decrees that the younger of his two daughters cannot be wed before her strong-willed, less popular and less beautiful sister is married. The problem is that no man in Padua is willing will marry Katherine the shrew. That is, until the fortune-hunting Petruchio, newly arrived from Verona, agrees to woo and wed Katherine (for a sizable dowry, of course). Thus, the battle of the sexes begins. Through a series of hilarious hi-jinks, Katherine is made to bend to her new husband's will and she reappears before her disbelieving family transformed.
