THE TAMING OF THE SHREW

  • Chicago Shakespeare Theater On Navy Pier 800 East Grand Avenue Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW – з 16 вересня до 12 листопада. Квитки від $48.

Artistic Director Barbara Gaines stages Shakespeare’s raucous comedy, partnering with longtime Second City writer Ron West, who provides additional dialogue to set the scene. The year is 1919, and, amidst suffrage marches, members of a Chicago women’s club convene to rehearse their upcoming production of The Taming of the Shrew. In an all-woman ensemble, each actress portrays a member of the women’s club and the Shakespeare character she plays. Politics and power, human rights, and true love are debated with wit and style as the women fight through adversity to present their own perspective on Katherine and Petruchio’s courtship.
