Shakespeare's classic comedy about of the most unlikely romantic couples in all of literature produced by Shakespeare Off-Broadway. More…
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.
