Book, lyrics and music by Richard A. Barbie, with a little help from "The Bard ".

Cast: 6m., 6w. (variable chorus.) An irresistible parade of punchlines and pratfalls is used to present William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Detailed stage directions describe a fast-paced collection of sight gags and physical business which tells the story in a language any audience can understand. Through careful editing and skillful blending of modern and 16th-century idioms, the script maintains the humor, rhythm and flavor of Shakespeare's dialogue in simple and comprehensible terms. A sparkling collection of songs rounds out a delightful evening of theatre. The original production of Shrew played to cheers and standing ovations from its audiences, but the cast loved it even more. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.

An optional accompaniment CD is available for use with this show. See Rental Info for details.
