The Taming of the Shrew
Live From Shakespeare's GlobeStreaming Video - 2013
Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who will take the wild, ungovernable, shrewish Katherina? Only the gold-digging Petruchio, a man as strong-willed as Katherina herself, is equal to the task of bullying and brainwashing her to the altar. Possibly Shakespeare's most outrageous work, The Taming of the Shrew introduces the screwball comedy with a sparring couple hell-bent on outwitting each other right up to the play's controversial conclusion. Samantha Spiro (Katherina) and Simon Paisley Day (Petruchio) were hailed by The Daily Mail as "a perfect match" in this production, filmed at Shakespeare's Globe.
