Enjoy an evening with friends and family as the award winning Take Note Troupe (TNT) stages Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” Bollywood style as a special Benefit Performance for APPAC Youth Programs. A story this lively is well served by the colorful, bold choices that a setting in India provide. And get ready for some fabulous Bollywood dance moves! TNT’s edit will include the often cut introduction with a slight addition to add to the fun. This context clarifies meaning and provides understanding to a play that is sometimes reduced to a superficial contest of Man versus Woman. In truth, there is so much more at stake in this play, and this staging hopes to soothe rather than inflame the age old battle of the sexes.

This play was written in and about a time when women had little say in whom they would marry. Thankfully, that is no longer true in most societies. It is TNT’s hope that audiences can look beyond this archaic societal convention and focus instead on why Katharina is a shrew and why Petruchio seeks to tame her (hint–it has nothing to do with their gender) and thus find relevance for our own battles to tame the shrew within.
