Heads Up for the week of March 1-7, 2021

A really light week this week so far.

Thur. March 4, 2021 7:00 pm


The Taming of the Shrew

This is the celebrated 1988 production directed by Richard Monette, starring Goldie Semple and Colm Feore. It was exquisite. Monette set it in 1950s Italy. Petruchio makes his entrance on a Vespa. Monette directed it as if it was his own family. The play is prickly. The production is a joy. You will think long and hard about what the play is saying. You will also lament the passing of Goldie Semple and Richard Monette.

Also check out the other treats of Stratford@Home: Undiscovered Sonnets and Up Close and Musical,  available for a modest price of $10/month.
