The Taming of the Shrew
There’s small choice in rotten apples.
The controversial battle of the sexes, Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew treats showgoers to a madcap comedy about men and women’s efforts—and failures—to live together. Swirling around the family of the wealthy lord, Baptista, the play follows his daughters, the beautiful Bianca and her temperamental sister, Katherina. As the title suggests, Kate is the shrew to be tamed, and her clever husband-to-be Petruchio goes about it in ways sure to provoke a reaction: viewers can expect laughter, mixed with the occasional bout of outrage at the gender imbalance in Shakespeare’s day. Unsurprisingly, this winning combination of humor and—perhaps unintentional—social commentary has resulted in a number of famous adaptations, including Cole Porter’s classic musical Kiss Me, Kate! and the teen comedy 10 Things I Hate About You.
The Theatre Project
There's growth as an actor, and then there's growth as a human being—but for the founders of The Theatre Project, there's no difference between the two. Emphasizing that actors are indeed ever-evolving human beings and not, as previously thought, aliens practicing how to be human beings, The Theatre Project has transformed into more than a theater company. Driven by a creative ensemble of artists who've banded together to revamp the modern theatergoing experience, it has become an organism. With fresh adaptations such as a take on 4.48 Pyschosis, the Project has earned the title of "Adventurous New Company" from The Villager, and its world-premiere productions have been rewarded with sold-out shows and have inspired Downtown Magazine to hail the Project as "one to watch in the next year." Yet, with each subsequent year, it continues to remain one to watch, as it puts imagination and teamwork into brand-new works and creative interpretations of the classics.
