The Taming of the Shrew

Chicago Shakespeare Theater | Chicago, Ill.

 

This fall, Artistic Director Barbara Gaines re-examines Shakespeare's notorious "battle of the
sexes." On the eve of the passing of the 19th Amendment in 1919, a band of Suffragettes
embarks on a production of The Taming of the Shrew. Framed with additional text by Ron West,
longtime performer and writer at Second City, this new interpretation features an all-woman
