The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of the current Royal Shakespeare Company production of The Taming of the Shrew on Wednesday, June 26 at 6:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in Stratford-upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
★★★★ “A landmark production as women take charge”
★★★★ “Deftly provocative and exuberantly entertaining”
In a reimagined 1590, women are in charge. Women hold the power, control the state, and own the property. In a society where men have no authority, Lady Baptista is selling off her two sons to the highest bidders. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story.
Director Justin Audibert turns Shakespeare’s fierce comedy of gender politics on its head with a production that offers a fresh perspective on its portrayal of power. Complete with a luxurious Elizabethan set, exquisite traditional costumes, and a contemporary-meets-renaissance musical score, this is a joyous and entertaining production of Shakespeare’s fierce comedy of the sexes.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers.
This screening runs approximately 3 hours including an onscreen introduction and one intermission.
Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater. No outside food or beverages allowed.
