This trimmed up, modern rendition of Shakespeare’s controversial comedy explores how far people will go to get what they want in the game of love. Lucentio desires to win the heart of the fair Bianca, but society dictates that she can’t be married until her “shrewish” older sister, Katherina, finds a husband. Enter gold-digging scoundrel Petruchio, who will marry the first wealthy woman he can, and decides to take on Katherina as the ultimate romantic challenge. What transpires is an all-out battle of wits, as opposing forces try to tame each other in an ever more outrageous quest for wedded bliss!
