Taming of the Shrew
Shakespeare's Uproarious Battle of the Sexes
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sara Bruner
April 6, 2019 Evening Performance
Get your tickets for the HCNEO trip to see Shakespeare's Taming of the Shre at the Great Lakes Theater on Saturday, April 6. We’ll have a private pre-show talk by our own Jim Marino ’91, a Shakespeare scholar at Cleveland State, at 6:00 pm, followed by a 7:30 show at the Hanna Theater.
The only thing that stands between Bianca and a bevy of eligible suitors is her quick-tempered, elder sister Katherina. That is until fortune-hunting Petruchio takes up the challenge to “tame” Kate and make her his wife. A madcap marriage and much mayhem ensues in a beguiling battle of wits and wills between the sexes which ultimately reveals an unlikely romance. Can love tame a shrewish heart and surprise an unbridled bachelor?
Group tickets with the club are sold out. Members are welcome to come to the pre-show talk. Buy your own tickets at the Great Lakes Theater website before and email Jim for pre-show directions.
