Is anyone a match for the brash and strong-willed Katherine? The dashing adventurer Petruchio thinks he’s up to the challenge. Two of the sexiest figures in all of world theatre set off sparks in a clash of wills that is as bold as it is uproarious. 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.”
An earlier version of this production of The Taming of the Shrew premiered at Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival (Davis McCallum, Artistic Director; Kate Liberman, Managing Director) in June 2018.
The Taming of the Shrew is supported by lead production sponsor Darlene Marcos Shiley, production sponors Diane Berol in memory of John Berol, Karen and Donald Cohn, Silvija and Brian Devine, The Conrad Prebys Foundation, Jean and Gary Shekhter, and the Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Fund, with additional artist sponsors The Lodge at Torrey Pines (for director Shana Cooper). This production is supported in part by the Jean and Gary Shekhter Fund for Classic Theatre.
