Must see, Great acting, Great staging, Best petruchio ever, Well spoken

See it if you like your Shakespeare well spoken by women finding the essence of SHREW with humor & good grace & fab performance of Elizabeth Preston

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare or a different perspective on what seems to be "the" traditional staging

See it if If you appreciate and can follow Shakespeare

Don't see it if If you are easily confused by Shakespearean language

Theatre is Easy
April 19th, 2016

"If you appreciate Shakespeare when done properly, you will absolutely love this production. It’s clear that Patterson understands the mechanics of Shakespeare’s language, and has pieced together an ensemble that delivers…If you’re as thirsty as I was for a refreshing, fun, and genuinely entertaining new approach to a Shakespearian classic, I highly recommend you take a little trip down to the East Village."

Theater Pizzazz
April 27th, 2016

"The all-female cast play all the roles convincingly and delightfully...The play also provides an incredibly novel, head-scratching, and admittedly quite amusing wrinkle: Bianca ('the pretty one') is played by a blow-up sex doll...Small, independent company Shakespeare, when done well, as it is here, always has much to offer: good theater at a good price and often with an unexpected approach to a known entity. The 'Taming of the Shrew 'is perfect fodder for lighthearted classical theater."

Show Showdown
April 21st, 2016

"The Queen’s Company tackles Shakespeare's comedy by infusing their take with a campy feel and a more feminist, redemptive ending...Mostly, the construct of women playing men works...Sometimes, though, when the traditional dialogue is spoken, the crispness of the language is lost in slipped words and too much gesticulation...Ultimately, this 'Shrew's' ending is touching and showcases Abercrombie's wonderfully expressive face."
