The Taming of the Shrew
InnerMission Productions complicates the Bard's comic characters, leaving audiences to question: Who is right, and who is wrong? Is Petruchio a masochistic manipulator, a psychotherapist, or a rebranding master marketer? Does Kate play along? Has she lost her sense of independence, or has she been brainwashed? Could.should a shrew be tamed? Carla Nell directs fourteen people to carry the story with humor and conviction, successfully filling a big show with big ideas in Diversionary Theatre's compact, black box space. Worth a try.
