Repercussion Theatre's Shakespeare in the Park

Taming of the Shrew has just started its summer tour in and around Montreal as part of Repercussion Theatre's Shakespeare-in-the-Park.

The play is one of Shakespeare's classic comedies and it's a lot of fun. But it's also a challenge to stage it today. The idea of taming one's wife is not as palatable as it was in the early 17th century.

Kirsten Rasmussen plays the feisty Katherina, or Kate. Alex McCooeye plays the fortune-hunter Petruchio. Paul Hopkins co-directed the show and he's also the artistic director of Repercussion Theatre. All three met with Elizabeth Robertson to talk about the play.
