An unlikely romance blooms in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew when one of the most unlikely romantic couples in all of literature -- Katherine and Petruchio -- meet and proceed down the rocky path toward marriage. The hilarity begins when wealthy Italian merchant Baptista Minola decrees that the younger of his two daughters cannot be wed before her sharp-tongued, less popular and less beautiful sister, but no man is willing to marry ill-tempered Katherine. At least until the fortune-hunting Petruchio, newly arrived from Verona, agrees to woo and wed Katherine (for a sizable dowry, of course). What follows is a "battle of the sexes" story that set the standard for nearly all to follow. Watch sparks fly in this Baltimore Shakespears Company production of The Taming of the Shrew at St. Mary's Community Center.
