Get Ready For The Taming Of The Shrew

June of 2016 Shakespeare on the Concho returns with a crowd favorite

The Taming of The Shrew

What do you get when you cross a spoiled rich boy looking for someone to support him and the rich strong willed woman he wants to marry? Sheer comedy!

This show has been much maligned in recent years because some consider it sexist and misogynist.Nevertheless it continues to be one of the most produced and greatest crowd-pleasers of Shakespeare’s plays.So, there must be more to it that just some outdated story of the battle between the sexes. It has been redone time and again and adapted into several Hollywood films like:

McClintock

With John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara

Deliver us from Eva
