This three-part panel discussion series uses The Taming of the Shrew to catalyze larger discussions not only about Shakespeare's world, but also the pressing social, cultural, and scientific issues of today. Scholars, Lantern artists, and audiences will examine the science of sexual attraction, explore the power of dance to break down barriers and transform cultures, and tackle Kate's 'taming' head on. Panelists include guest scholars Rita DeMaria, PhD, Patricia Denison, PhD, and Carolyn Merritt, PhD, along with Taming of the Shrew director Charles McMahon, actors Joanna Liao (Katherine) and J Hernandez (Petruchio), and fight director J. Alex Cordaro.
