The Taming of The Shrew

by William Shakespeare

directed by James Jennings

"This is the way to kill a wife with kindness." 

The renowned American Theatre of Actors presents Shakespeare's "The Taming of The Shrew." Kate is a witty, waspish shrew. Yet, she must be married off before her younger, tamer sister. When Petruchio comes in search of a wife, will he live to woo this wildcat, Kate? Award winning Director James Jennings stages this touching battle-of-the-sexes comedy, in which an unwilling bride has it out in tongue-lashings with her husband while he starves her out of her sulks! This slapstick, misogynistic, controversial tale will leave you laughing all the way home! Shrew is one of the most beloved Shakespearean comedies, inspiring such spin-offs as the musical "Kiss Me, Kate" & the movie "10 Things I Hate About You."
