The Taming of the Shrew

By The Lyric Theatre (other events)

11 Dates Through Apr 15, 2018

WallByrd Theatre Company presents Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew March 29th - April 15th at the Lyric Theatre in Rochester NY.

Vibrant, playful, and full of unexpected wonder; this whimsical, fast-paced production of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew brings the art of clowning to the heart of Rochester. 

A show for all audiences; families, couples, and those who are seeking that childish joy of being playful once more.

SYNOPSIS: Katherina Minola is known far and wide for her sharp tongue and violent rhetoric.  She meets her match, however, in the bold and boorish antics of Petruccio.  They are a perfect match in wit and in wills, but cutting through shrewish habits might take more than either of them bargained for. 

A foolish romance with profound insight into a kind of love that makes children of us all.

Join our cast of dreamers and fools as they tell a tale of love turned on its head; where beauty is the beast and tomfoolery is a very serious matter indeed. In this Imaginarium nothing is what it seems.  Filled with music, acrobatics, slapstick, and more, it’s an interactive experience you have to see to believe.
