The Taming of the Shrew
This summer, Tony nominated director Phyllida Lloyd turns Shakespeare's zany comedy of the sexes The Taming 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 Biancaâ€™s clever, fiery older sister, Katherina, played by Olivier Nominee Cush Jumbo (Josephine and I, The River), who may just outsmart them all. Tony and Olivier winner Janet McTeer (A Dollâ€™s House, Mary Stuart) plays Petruchio, the wild outsider Katherina must outwit, in Shakespeareâ€™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.
