CityShakes is cooking up a fast and furious, rom-com version of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, to take place on Valentine’s Day, 2013.

Brooke Bishop, CityShakes Co-Founder, will direct and has been spending a lot of time with the text, trying to “ha’ to it afresh”. She has managed to cut the script down to a 90-minute version with 14 roles played by 8 actors!

Casting is well under way – Allison Volk, CityShakes Co-Founder, is ecstatic to play Katherine, and 5 other actors are already on board!

CityShakes will partner with a to-be-announced musical artist to turn Shrew into a play, concert, and party. There will be food, drinks, music, and Shakespeare at a venue yet to be determined. Venue hunting: that’s this week’s project!

Stay tuned for more news on this exciting production.
