The Globe Theatre will be putting on a production of Shakespeare's outrageous comedy "The Taming of the Shrew".
The play follows two wealthy sisters as they search for a husband. Bianca is modest and kind, and has no trouble attracting a string of enviable suitors, but Katherina is wild and shrewish and the only man who wants to know is the gold-digging Petruchio. Will he be able to bully her to the altar?
