Sept. 11-20: Taming of the Shrew

Combining Shakespeare and the classic 50s in a production of Taming of the Shrew, we present this classic play in a style reminiscent of Sid Caesar and Your Show of Shows. In a time not too long ago, before political correctness was a term, penniless Petruchio sets out to tame the untameable Shrew, for a price. The Shrew, Katharina, must be married before her beautiful younger sister. What follows is Shakespeare's most violent and entertaining love story. Come hear Shakespeare's words, and actually understand and enjoy them! Buy tickets at www.inlandtheatreworks.org. Productions will take place at Sturges Center for the Performing Arts, 780 North E Street San Bernardino, CA 92410. Tickets are $10-25.
