Audition Info

Welcome to Taming of the Shrew, directed by Felicia Perez.
Taming of The Shrew is known as perhaps the most controversial and audacious play Shakespeare put to paper. So, why not push that boldness even more? Instead of a man taming “his” woman, what if it’s a woman taming “her” woman? With the scene of New York City’s back alley streets and run-down neighborhoods in the 1990’s, we see two women falling in love, and the unfolding story portrays one human bringing down another human; regardless of gender.
