Riotous events lead to the ill-fitting marriage of the arrogant Petruchio and the headstrong Kate. Full of wit and lusty humor, Shakespeare╩╝s quintessential battle of the sexes redefines the boundaries of love. Helen Hayes Award-winning director Aaron Posner leads real life husband and wife Cody Nickell and Kate Eastwood Norris in a sparing match enlivened by original music composed and performed by singer-songwriter Cliff Eberhardt.
