Long Beach Shakespeare Company's Richard Goad Theatre (Long Beach, CA)
The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare's classic romantic comedy, pits the spirited Katherine against the fortune-seeking Petruchio, who has agreed to woo and marry her as a favor to his old friend Hortensio. Hortensio is in love with Bianca, Katherine's younger, more beautiful and more popular sister, but the younger sister can only be married after Katherine does. Unfortunately, Katherine has a notorious temper and so far no man will have her -- until Petruchio comes along to "tame" her.
