Indiana Festival Theatre: The Taming of the Shrew
This is the first in a three-part series of posts about the Indiana Festival Theatre's summer productions. William Shakespeare's classic comedy The Taming of the Shrew is currently being performed at the Wells-Metz Theatre on the IU campus. The show will continue through July 27 and we've got a voucher good for two tickets for one lucky B-town Blog reader!
In Shakespeare's day, "comedy" meant only that the lead character didn't die. Here, it means that the fun button has been punched and turned up loud, " said The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about this play.
This is Shakespeare's take on the classic battle of the sexes as a desperate father insists that his eldest daughter, the temperamental Kate, find a husband before the fair younger sister may marry. Enter the passionate, cocksure Petruchio who spirits Kate away to "tame" her. Crockery shall be thrown!
