Look, if you're going to do this play today you have to an angle that makes it relevant and/or ridiculous. This production doesn't. (An all female cast is not an angle, it's a casting decision). They played it straight and it came our odious. Kate's last speech was simply wretched. Okay, all the women actors are multi-talented and perform with gusto, but they suffer from a lack of a directorial hutzpah.


Brilliant, best night out for some time. The instrumental talents of the cast were a nice surprise.

A pointless experiment, no sexual chemistry, limited vocal range and no cohearant style with music and costumes from 1930s to present day. definitely one to miss.

I have seen such better productions of this. Kate was not that wild, the taming was not that interesting. Not impressed at all. The characters lacked the humor and depth. I was expecing so much better. Super surprisingly bad.
