The Taming of the Shrew (Stratford Shakespeare Festival) - 8/21/08

I thought the "The Taming of the Shrew" (8/21/08) at the Festival Theatre was a convoluted production. It's now being performed as a play within a play, with Queen Elizabeth I presiding (?!) over the performance. The show, overall, was admirably performed, but all the directorial touches (Peter Hinton, director) distract rather than enhance.

Rating: ** (out of *****)
