Notes & Reviews:
This 'intelligent and energetic production' (Daily Telegraph) of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew was captured in High Definition and surround sound at the faithful reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre on the banks of the Thames (which has been called 'a theatrical heaven' by the Sunday Express). It stars Simon Paisley Day and Samantha Spiro as the calm and complex Petruchio and the tempestuous Katherina. 'Although it's broad and bawdy, there are a few essential touches of poignancy, and the laughs come thick and fast.' (Evening Standard) 'Bravely and wisely, director Toby Frow balances the play's startling cruelty with exuberant comic energy, rather than knowing irony' (The Telegraph).Notes & Reviews:
