The Taming of the Shrew is often viewed as one of Shakespeare's more complex comedies. Some scholars believe that it's a gut-wrenching display of misogyny while others say it is what a true partnership of matching wits and maneuvers looks like. As someone firmly in the camp of the latter, it's always interesting when a theatre company, especially a new one, chooses to do this show for their season. It often takes a good directorial eye, an adept cast, and a heavy-hitting production team to put everything together in such a way that makes the show shine in a way that makes everyone leave the theatre smiling. I sat down with the show's director and Petruchio, Keath Hall, to talk about the subtle nuances of a complex show like Shrew to get a little taste before it opens and closes at the Irish Cultural Center this weekend.
