Shakespeare & Company presents The Taming of the Shrew. It’s Carnivale time in the Veneto and the spring winds blow warm, then cold. Change is in the air as traveling players roam the hills, gentlemen journey to Padua in search of education and fortune, and wily lovers disguise, deceive, and clown their way to their hearts’ desires. Fierce and outspoken Katharina has always been a spectator at the game of love. When cocky but cash-poor Petruchio (Rocco Sisto) comes to town, she unwillingly finds herself in the field of play — and in the fight of her life. Before Lent is out and the honeymoon is over, more than one proud heart may find itself transformed. Directed by Daniela Varon.
