Taming of the Shrew
About Taming of the Shrew
Baptista has two daughters. One of them is very popular and has men, young and old, lined up to marry her. But Baptista is an old fashioned gentleman who insists that someone has to step up and marry his older daughter Katherina first. Problem is Katherina does NOT agree and refuses to play nice. Then bad boy Petruchio shows up. He is looking for a rich wife and offers to “tame” Katherina. Baptista agrees to let him try. Set in modern day, Ophelia's Jump's high energy production features an all female cast playing both male and female roles. With dynamic fight choreography and no holds barred tomfoolery this production gives a fresh 21st century twist to Shakespeare’s ode to the patriarchy because, after all, shrews don’t need to be tamed.
