Overview

When headstrong Kate is married off to Petruchio, expect fireworks. Meanwhile, a zany competition heats up for her sister’s hand and dowry. Love and money make people do strange things! The Taming of the Shrew is a rollicking romantic comedy that has influenced generations of entertainment, including the teen movie “Ten Things I Hate About You” and Anne Tyler’s 2016 novel, “Vinegar Girl.” Four hundred years after Shakespeare’s death, Shrew remains one of his most popular comedies even though its concluding speech about gender roles offends. Special events: Join us for “Scolds, Bridles, and Shrews: Nasty Women in Early Modern England,” a lively pre-show Conversation with Professor Amy M. Froide at 6:30pm on Saturday, March 18. Or read Anne Tyler’s “Vinegar Girl” and then come to the theatre for drinks and a book discussion with Kelly Emerson, a Maryland Institute College of Art adjunct professor who teaches the Age of Shakespeare. Details are at ChesapeakeShakespeare.com.
