The hilarity begins when an Italian merchant decrees that the younger of his two daughters cannot be wed before her strong-willed, less popular and less beautiful sister is married. The problem is that no man in Padua is willing to marry Katherine the shrew. That is, until the fortune-hunting Petruchio, newly arrived from Verona, agrees to woo and wed Katherine (for a sizable dowry, of course). What ensues is a "battle of the sexes" story that set the standard for nearly all to follow.

Stage Buddy

"This 'Taming of the Shrew,' though uneven in its performances, is a surprisingly adept interpretation of a typically problematic piece...This production navigates the piece’s inherent sexism quite well, presenting Kate and Petruchio as each other’s equals without reimagining or heavily adapting the text...This 'Shrew' is actually an admirable production, which entertains without requiring the audience to accept or overlook the sexism."
