Shakespeare in The Park: Taming of the Shrew

The NY Times called Phyllida Lloyd's all female production of Henry IV "a celebration of the metamorphic wonder of live stage acting". This summer, the Tony director turns Shakespeare's zany comedy of the sexes, 'The Taming of the Shrew", on its head with an all female cast and a bold new take

Lovely Bianca is the prize to be won by all the men looking to land themselves a wealthy wife. But the competitors will first have to marry off Bianca's clever, fiery older sister Katherina (played by Olivier nominee Cush Jumbo) who may just outsmart them all

Tony and Olivier winner Janet McTeer plays Petruchio, the wild outsider Katherina must outwit, in Shakespeare's original screwball comedy showing the lengths men will go to for their legacy, what women will do to break free and the outrageous things we all do for the human heart

This performance will be followed by a post-performance reception with members of the cast and creative team
