One of Shakespeare's most famous comedies, The Taming of the Shrew, will be staged this weekend at the Xinghai Concert Hall by Britain’s TNT Theatre.
The Taming of the Shrew tackles serious topics, like the relations of men and women and money and love, in a humorous way. TNT Theatre is faithful to the original play, reproducing classic Shakespearean dialogues, innocuous erotic jokes and English humor.
While many other theaters have tried to weaken the chauvinism depicted in the original play, TNT’s director attempts instead to depict the different ways the play has been performed over the years.
Time: November 26-27, 7.30 p.m.
Price: RMB 100-320
Venue: Xinghai Concert Hall
Add: 33 Qingbo Lu, Ersha Island, Yuexiu District
