By William Shakespeare
Directed by Lisa Wolpe

Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy is reimagined, reversing the genders of the leading couple, and set in a music-filled saloon in the American West. Kat and Petruchia face off at high noon and gamble on an explosive high-stakes marriage at gunpoint. Directed by Lisa Wolpe, The Taming of the Shrew follows Kat and Petruchia in a joyous romp as they turn chaos into harmony and contentious wooing into solid hope for a wonderful marriage. While everyone around them is caught up trying to trick someone into partnership, Kat and Petruchia turn out to be the only man and woman who have truly – if unexpectedly – fallen in love!

Location: Vivian Fusillo Mainstage theater
