The Taming of the Shrew
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Ceal Phelan
March 30 - April 29, 2007
An all-male cast gives new energy to the lusty sparring between Katherine, Padua's town shrew, and the capricious, oddball bachelor Petruchio. This bold re-imagining of Shakespeare's famous battle of the sexes returns to the gender-bending roots of Shakespeare's own time!
