The Taming of the Shrew

Tenth Avenue Arts Center
E Street 930 10th Avenue San Diego

Shakespeare's rowdy, screwball comedy The Taming of the Shrew follows the treacherous road to romance for a strong-willed pair of lovers who've met their ultimate match in one another. Until Kate has a husband, her sweet younger sister, Bianca, cannot marry -- but feisty, fiery-tongued Kate rejects every suitor who tries to woo her. Along comes Petruchio, willing to take a chance...and her sizable dowry. His efforts to tame her remain a controversial aspect of this tale, reminding us of the expected gender roles of 400 years past, and how far we have and haven't come since. Packed with timely and provocative points regarding gender politics, this show on the rooftop of San Diego's Tenth Avenue Arts Center is sure to send the sparks flying.
