Jazz Pass (21 and under): $15

General Admission
"The Taming of the Shrew" or "Kiss Me Kate" or "10 Things I Hate About You" or even "The Timing of Us Two" (I just made that one up!)... however you perceive this play, Shakespeare meant it as devise, a diversion, a trick, a mischievous entertainment. His plot revolves around Katherine and Petruchio: the first is a woman who is not afraid to speak her mind, (she's no one's fool!) and the latter, is a man who thinks he can "tame" her in order to win a bet. Everything's a gamble, love most of all! Yes? We take this 434- year-old play, set it in San Francisco in the 1970's (the Summer of Love), mix in a few twists and turns, a gender switch or two adding to the hilarity, and all the while delivering a theatrical experience fit for our times. The Taming of the Shrew: Buckle up, it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Directors L. Peter Callender and Giulio C. Perrone

About African-American Shakespeare Company:

The award-winning African-American Shakespeare Company (AASC) was established in 1994 as an alternative answer to the “Color Blind Casting” initiative that began in the early 90s. African-American Shakespeare Company aspires to highlight the dynamic cultural vibrancy that artists of color bring to classical productions. African-American Shakespeare Company received a Certificate of Honor from Mayor London Breed and California Governor Gavin Newsom; named “Best Live Theatre” by San Francisco Magazine in 2018; received a Jefferson Award for Public Service (Silver Recipient) in 2018; The Paine Knickerbocker Award in 2014 for Outstanding Achievement for a Theater Company by the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle; along with a Community Partner Award from University of San Francisco's Leo T. McCarthy Center for outstanding collaboration in providing a quality Service-Learning program.

African-American Shakespeare Company is funded in part by Shakespeare for a New Generation, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest; San Francisco Arts Commission, City and County of San Francisco’s Dream Keeper’s Initiative; Grants for the Arts; California Arts Council; Black Seed Fund; Wattis Foundation; Kimball Foundation; The Shubert Foundation; Union Bank Foundation; and Office of Economic and Workforce Division.
