Last Leaf’s Taming of the Shrew-opens at Volunteer Park

The Taming of the Shrew

Under the deft and creative direction of Laura Kessler, Last Leaf Productions opened Taming of the Shrew at the Seattle Outdoor Theatre Festival in Volunteer Park on Saturday. One of Shakespeare’s early comedies, Shrew is beloved by both of actors and audiences because of its slap-stick antics, repartee which is sheer linguistic gymnastics, but most of all because underneath everything lies an inverted Beauty and the Beast message with accurate psychological insight.
