Concept:

Love, power, gender roles, and companionship reach raucous heights in Chautauqua Theater Company’s unbridled new spin on Shakespeare’s comedic battle of the sexes, The Taming of the Shrew. Closing the season, the production will feature the entire 2016 Conservatory company. “This play challenges us in  today’s politically correct world,” says director and CTC Artistic Director Andrew Borba. “but that also provides us a much needed opportunity to laugh at ourselves. I promise that with the combination of the extraordinary talents of those who will be the leading classical actors of tomorrow, Shakespeare’s language, and a dash of contemporary spin--which I refuse to reveal at this time--this production will be anything but tame!”
