Vermont Shakespeare Festival – “The Taming of the Shrew”
When the clever and fiery Kate meets the clamorous and entrepreneurial Petruchio, sparks fly, perceptions are smashed and the world upends itself. Shakespeare’s delirious take on gender roles explores marriage as a commodity and love itself as theatre. One of Shakespeare’s most talked-about comedies, The Taming of the Shrew is sure to entertain, disrupt, and leave us thinking about who we are as we navigate the human heart.
