Chicago Shakespeare’s Barbara Gaines has a New Take on “The Taming of the Shrew”

**** Highly Recommended **** I had so much fun watching Chicago Shakespeare Theatre’s new production of “The Taming of the Shrew”. Interestingly enough, I think the all female cast had just as much fun doing the play as I had watching it! Kudos to Barbara Gaines for coming with a completely new take on the courtship of Petruchio and his shrewish Kate. 4 BIG Spotlights
