Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Shakespeare in the Park's All-Female TAMING OF THE SHREW
The Public's Free Shakespeare in the Park production of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW is currently in rehearsal, and BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company below! Directed by Phyllida Lloyd, this all-female production begins performances on May 24 and is part of the global 400th anniversary celebration of William Shakespeare's life and death. The free production will officially open on Tuesday, June 14 and run through Sunday, June 26.
The complete cast of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW features Candy Buckley (Vincentio); Donna Lynne Champlin (Hortensio); Rosa Gilmore (Lucentio); Judy Gold (Gremio); LaTanya Richardson Jackson (Baptista); Cush Jumbo (Katherina); Teresa Avia Lim (Biondello);Janet McTeer (Petruchio); Adrienne C. Moore (Tranio); Anne L. Nathan (Pedant); Gayle Rankin (Bianca); Pearl Rhein (Ensemble);Leenya Rideout (Ensemble); Jackie Sanders (Ensemble); and Stacey Sargeant (Grumio).
This summer, the Tony nominated director Phyllida Lloyd turns Shakespeare's zany comedy of the sexes THE TAMING OF THE SHREW on its head, with an all-female cast and a bold new take. Lovely Bianca is the prize to be won by all the men looking to land themselves a wealthy wife. But the competitors will first have to marry off Bianca's clever, fiery older sister, Katherina played by Olivier nominee Cush Jumbo, who may just outsmart them all. Tony and Olivier winner Janet McTeer plays Petruchio, the wild outsider Katherina must outwit, in Shakespeare's original screwball comedy showing the lengths men will go to for their legacy, what women will do to break free and the outrageous things we all do for the human heart.
