The Taming of the Shrew
610 F Street NW Washington
One of the hot tickets of this upcoming theater season is sure to be Shakespeare Theatre Company's lively production of the classic battle of the sexes The Taming of the Shrew. Sparks will fly at Sidney Harman Hall when the "shrewish" Katherine locks horns with the opportunistic Petruchio, the only man in Padua willing to woo her. (Of course, Petruchio is working an angle: Kate's father has promised him a sizable dowry if he weds his daughter.) This fiery romantic comedy set the standards for centuries to come, and it remains one of the true classics of the genre.
Presented by Shakespeare Theatre Company
