My Coffee Cup Rating:

Taming of the Shrew is a darkly funny play. Katherine is truly a heinous bitch (Yes, 10 Things I Hate About You is an all-time favorite movie) and in Petruchio’s ‘taming’ of Katherine, although some parts make you snort a little like you do with dark humor, commented on big controversy surrounding marriage, women’s obedience, and the behavioral expectations of women. 588 more words
