The Taming of the Shrew

“Come on, and kiss me, Kate.”

Can anyone “tame” the brash and headstrong Katherine? The dashing adventurer Petruchio thinks he’s the man for the job. Two of the sexiest spirits in all of world theatre set off sparks in a clash of wills that is as hilarious as it is outrageous. Shakespeare’s masterful comedic take on the battle of the sexes turns everything we think about love, marriage, and gender on its head. Director Shana Cooper brings to the Globe her daring and contemporary staging, which The New York Times praised as “an exhilarating new way to look at the comedy through modern eyes,” and The Wall Street Journal’s theatre critic called “the best Shrew I’ve ever reviewed.”
