Courtship or conquest? The breakdown of a defiant spirit or a breakthrough that liberates a heart deprived of love? From the world-renowned Stratford Festival, this scintillating production of Shakespeare's boisterous comedy The Taming of the Shrew will stir your emotions as you follow the love story of Katherina and Petruchio - the feisty lovers at the center of Shakespeare's most pointed social commentary. Deborah Hay gives a "performance for the ages" as the Shrew, and Ben Carlson is the perfect counterpoint as her plotting suitor, creating a chemistry that sets the stage alight.
