The taming of. the shrew


It is still a funny piece played often and very differently each time.

Do we want to hear its messages - and what are they?

Nowadays, they play it as if it become a play only between the husband, loving his wife and the wife, finally being loved; But is it? Was it?

They did perform it like they thought it would have been at old times and with songs and dancing and very big funny movements - it did work for adults and it did enchant the young audience.

They had to postpone it twice, as it rained and it could not be performed in the park as programmed, finally they did find a community theater to play it for free to anyone. The outskirt Maryland theater was almost full!

It was a nice way to finish the three weeks in USA.
