In Announcements, by , on October 21st, 2015

Men and women square off in a volatile love match from Nov. 5 – 15 as NU Theatre presents The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare.  Young Bianca can have her pick of suitors, but not until her older sister Kate has been married off. Unfortunately, the combative and outspoken Kate has earned a reputation as a real shrew, and no man wants anything to do with her.  Enter the dashing and confident Petruchio. See what happens when intimate negotiations become spectator sport.
