The Theatre Arts Program at North Carolina A&T State University presents Shakespeare’s Romantic Comedy The Taming of the Shrew

North Carolina A&T State Universities Theatre Arts Program presents the raucous Rom-Com, The Taming of the Shrew. This classic play is anything but tame in the hands of director Xulee-Vanecia J. Love and power reach a fever pitch as Petruchio, is challenged to tame the beautiful and strong-willed shrew, Katharina. This unbridled new spin on Shakespeare’s comedic battle of the sexes will have audiences pondering many of the issues about gender that confront our society today. “We are in a very dynamic and turbulent time especially with regard to gender politics, and this production will highlight that women are powerful in more ways than we could ever imagine, says Xulee”. Blending outlandish farce, with urban style and heightened language this production asks the question, who is taming who?
