MONTCLAIR, NJ - ​Hudson Shakespeare Company returns to Montclair Public Library with Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, and takes the Bard’s story of the “war of the sexes” and updates the action to 1960s Italy.

It’s Felini’s La Dolce Vita with a “Man Men” flair as Kate, a modern urban woman, chafes against her strict Italian mother, Baptista, and the moronic men who pander and pursue her more traditional and allegedly submissive sister Bianca. Petruchio, an out of town playboy is now looking to settle down and thinks he’s seen it all, heard it all and that nothing can shake him. In an arranged marriage, Petruchio and Kate find each incredibly insufferable but unexpectedly connected as their prior worlds collapse and they become open to new points of view.

Romance blossoms among buffoonish servants, parental windbags, secret weddings, and a fun-filled romp through the northern Italian country side.
