Aquila Theatre: The Taming of the Shrew
(Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))
The Beautiful Bianca desires to be married - but she cannot be courted until her shrewish sister is taken to wife by...anyone. Two of Bianca's loving suitors hire fortune-hunting Petruchio to win the hand of the wild (but wealthy) Katherina, and to "tame" her. With wisecracks, acerbic wit and a quick temper, neither man nor woman is willing to yield in this classic comedy of the sexes. Aquila Theatre, as always, takes a fresh look at one of Shakespeare's most challenging comedies, with a style the New York Times has described as "Gleefully engaging... almost unbearable fun... directed with inspiration and a beautiful use of physical humor." Don't miss another inventive work from the creators of last season's sold-out theatrical events! more information...
