Petruchio decides that Kate, the beautiful girl with the awful temper, will make a wonderful wife once she's tamed. Kate wants nothing to do with any suitor. The stormy courting—through the final taming of the shrew—is one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable stories. This adaptation and simplification is designed to tell a delicious love story with the charm and beauty of the original.

- "It is a great, manageable way to do Shakespeare. The audience was enthralled and the cast learned a thing or two. It is true to the original style and intent."

- "This is a very good "spliced" version of Taming. They have all the funny scenes, but they still have a good story line to it. It's lots of fun."
