Summary
This comic confrontation between the sexes is one of the most frequently-staged Shakespeare plays. Its sparkling wit and rich characterizations are matched with an outstanding cast. Dr. Miller's production portrays Petruchio as an early Puritan, to reflect his view that the play is about the need to set up a sober household
