With The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare gives us the improbable courtship of the fiery-tongued Katherine by the arrogant Petruchio. But unlike Shakespeare’s other romantic comedies, the play does not stop with the wedding. Shakespeare considers the institution of marriage, the rifts between men and women, and the rough journey toward love. One of Shakespeare’s earliest and most popular comedies, The Taming of the Shrew bursts with disguise, deception and devilment. Director Rebecca Bayla Taichman makes her Shakespeare Theatre Company debut with this comedy.

“Smashing…Taichman blazes her own dazzling trail…in this chic, funny and marvelously acted modern-dress production.”
