When poor Hortensio finds out he cannot marry Bianca, his one true love, until her violently standoffish sister Katherina takes a husband, his best friend Petruchio, in a show of true friendship (not to mention a desire for an enormous dowry) tries to woo the impossible Shrew. One of Shakespeare's oldest and most celebrated comedies, The Taming of the Shrew; pits wit against wit in a knock-down, drag-out battle of the sexes, set against the lovely backdrop of Padua, Italy.
