The Taming of the Shrew

The quintessential battle of the sexes, Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew treats showgoers to a madcap comedy about men's and women's efforts—and failures—to live together. Swirling around the family of the wealthy lord, Baptista, the play follows the efforts to woo his daughters, the beautiful Bianca and her temperamental sister, Katherina. Equal parts raucous comedy of errors and complex examination of Elizabethan gender roles, the play comes to life at the hands of the venerable, New York–based Aquila Theatre, whose Shakespeare productions have been praised by the LA Times as "superb" and "exceptionally rewarding."

Kay Meek Centre

Mrs. Kay Meek could be considered a visionary of the theatre arts. She wanted to create a place that inspired the community and brought it together before the stage. To that end, she financed the Kay Meek Centre, a cultural hub that blends classic touches into a uniquely modern venue. With blond wood, soft pink brick, and purple fabrics, the main theatre is timeless, with acoustics that enhance every musical performance and stagehand’s whispered wish to be famous. The studio theatre, on the other hand, provides a more intimate experience, with adjustable seating able to adapt to any show.
