Shakespeare’s archetypal battle of the sexes pits the feisty Katherine against the equally brawling Petruchio. Only these two could put each other through so much hell for a match made in heaven. Of our production, Misha Berson of the Seattle Times said, “Wooden O is touring a lean frisky version of the play…it maximize[s] the entertaining aspects of the show.”
