Taming of the Shrew
Fenimore Art Museum’s Glimmer Globe Theatre is preparing an exceptional season of live main stage productions in its Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater for the Summer of 2019: In July, we present William Shakespeare’s inflaming Taming of the Shrew, followed by Thornton Wilder’s beloved Our Town in August. This comes after profoundly successful productions of Macbeth (2015), The Crucible (2016), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2017), Othello (2018), and The Importance of Being Earnest (2018) in the same venue.
Taming of the Shrew is considered one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays,” specifically because it explores women’s role in marriage and society in ways that are at once side-splittingly funny and deeply controversial. Our interpretation of the play will be playful and bold, tackling the themes head-on so that audiences will be entertained but also provoked to think, to debate, and to question. Michael Henrici will direct and play the male lead, Petruchio, opposite his wife, Danielle Henrici, as Kate. They will be joined on stage by a superb cast of local actors.
Taming of the Shrew Dates: July 3, 5, 10, 17, 24, 26, 31. All performances at 7 PM.
Tickets: $15 Adults (13-64), $13.50 Members/Seniors (65+), $10 Juniors (7-12), Free ages 6 and under (please select the free ticket option).
In the event of a performance cancelation due to inclement weather, all tickets will be valid for any subsequent Glimmer Globe performance for the rest of the season.
