BWW Review: South Coast Repertory Stages World Premiere of SHREW! BWW Review: South Coast Repertory Stages World Premiere of SHREW!
by Michael Quintos - Apr 12, 2018

That is the premise of South Coast Repertory's latest World Premiere production SHREW!-which continues performances in Costa Mesa through April 21. The results? A funny but flawed update with good intentions. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Mar 18, 2018

Playwright Amy Freed has always been a Shakespeare fan. Her breakout hit, The Beard of Avon (SCR-commissioned and premiered, 2001), was a smart, funny look at the controversy surrounding the authorship of Shakespeare's plays. Now comes SHREW!

Art Manke directs SHREW!, which is an anchor production of the 2018 Pacific Playwrights Festival. Tickets are available at www.scr.org. (more...)
