The Hipgnosis Theatre Company returns with a fresh look at The Taming of the Shrew, following up successful productions of Measure for Measure and The Winter's Tale with one of Shakespeare's most controversial but also funniest plays!
As a ramshackle, vaudeville-inspired Taming unfolds-- complete with actor-produced music and sound effects, colorful backdrops and unforgiving footlights-- the story of Kate and Petruchio, the hidden play inside the slapstick, comes into full focus. Hipgnosis' The Taming of the Shrew is a meditation on love, the theatrics it demands from us and creates in us, and what it means to be truly rich.
When: June 15 - July 1; Wednesdays - Saturdays, ; Sundays, ; additional Saturday matinee () on June 30.
Where: Flamboyan Theatre, at the Clemente Soto Velez (CSV) Cultural Center,
