Shakespeare Without Fear offers two more weekends of Taming of the Shrew
This isn't difficult or dull. It's good comedy AND romance, perfect for date-night.
This show is eligible for Flex Passes, which can be purchased below, if you don't have yours yet.
Taming of the Shrew is a play that often comes with a disclaimer, so here it is: yes, there is an anti-feminist slant that is a product of Shakespeare's time. But consider the irony of a play about a very domineering man, written in the reign of a never-dominated Queen. Elizabeth I is rumored to have loved the play, and so should you. Underlying this is a genuine love story is a battle of wits and wills for the ages. And there is a fine array of comic characters: three suitors for Kate's young sister, real worried fathers, "pretend" fathers, masters and servants trading places. Love AND laughter! Lots of shenanigans, some incredible costumes and scenery, and a group of hard-working actors make this a must-see.
The show runs March 10, 11, 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. and March 12 and 19 at 2 p.m.
