The Taming of the Shrew
One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, this classic work focuses on the wild and headstrong Katherine, who must have a husband before her father Baptista will allow her younger sister Bianca to wed. Bianca's suitors conspire to find just the right man for the job. When the swaggering Petruchio comes to Padua looking for a wife-a comedy is born. But can this "ruff"and ready hero tame the unruly Kate?
