The Taming of the Shrew

Directed by Jeremy Mahr
March 2008

“…the best time I’ve had at an area show in all of 2008. And, quite possibly, in all of 2007. And 2006… truly staggering.”
Mike Schulz, River Cities’ Reader

“Prenzie has taken this ‘great big disco ball of a play,’ as one cast member called it… and made it sparkle.”
David Burke, Quad-City Times

“The sheer number of… fine performances make it impossible for a single review to do them all justice.”
-Ruby Nancy
