The Taming of the Shrew
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Paul T. Mitri
Performed at the Newmark Brown Bag Theatre
July 14, 1994–August 13, 1994
"The Taming of the Shrew" is a notoriously perilous undertaking which sends bachelor Petruchio to the undertaker as he matches wits with the whip-tongued Katherine in William Shakespeare's timeless romp. This time around, their legendary sparring is considerably enlivened by director Paul T. Mitri, who combines physical comedy traditions from commedia dell'arte to vaudeville, in this highly theatrical and thoroughly delightful production.
