Great Lakes’ ‘Shrew’ tames Shakespeare’s chauvinism.
GLT’s “Shrew” is a wonderful evening of the Bard at his finest, in a production that delights and, if you are also in the mood, illuminates the tale of conflicted love and the battle of men and women. Go! See! Enjoy!
High jinxes, disguises and impersonations abound in this wonderful rendition where all the comedy stops are pulled for laughs. This is a rollicking depiction that is laugh out loud funny and one that will help you forget the weather for a few hours. This is must see theater that will bring cheer to the entire family.
Director Sara Bruner’s The Taming of the Shrew at the Hanna Theatre brings a welcome fresh look, lots of insight, and--most importantly--plenty of laughs (it is, after all, a comedy). This Great Lakes production of the Shakespeare classic also boasts a dynamic cast, one that speaks clearly enough for jokes to be funny and moves quickly enough to keep us involved.
