One of Shakespeare’s most famous and most challenging comedies, The Taming of the Shrew tells the story of the timeless battle of the sexes. The inspiration for multiple operas and spinoffs, The Taming of the Shrew has been famously adapted by each generation, inspiring Gil Junger’s modern retelling, 10 Things I Hate About You and Cole Porter’s Tony Award winning musical Kiss Me Kate. The Taming of the Shrew, performed by the Aquila Theatre Company, based in New York City, is described by The New Yorker as producing “Classics made relevant with superb acting and clever staging” and The New York Times as “An extraordinarily inventive and disciplined outfit.”
