The Hidden Room's "The Taming of the Shrew - Original Practices" attempts to recreate as closely as possible the playing conditions from the period in which it was written. Live musicians play period appropriate instruments, costumes were created with attention to period detail, and the all-male cast engaged in direct address to the audience, and used a muscular bawdy style.
This award-winning and highly acclaimed production is currently preparing a tour. The full version of the play will be available shortly. More information on the Hidden Room and the mysteries therein can be found at hiddenroomtheatre.com.
