The Taming of the Shrew
By William Shakespeare
June 2-18, 2017 | Tulane’s Lupin Theater
Directed by Emilie Whelan in collaboration with Cripple Creek Theatre Company
Runtime: Approximately 100 minutes with no intermission
This production toured to underserved audiences – as well as a prison – before opening the Festival’s mainstage season!
A bawdy comedy that turns raw and heartbreaking, The Taming of the Shrew confronts the intimate makings of a servant. As Petruchio sets out to “tame” the unbridled Katherina – and men vie for the affections of the dutiful Bianca – themes of disguise, subversion, and costume run rampant.
