Pop Up Globe – The Taming of the Shrew

This is a blog for my (all consuming) literary life, but I will make an exception for attending the performance of this play, as I reread TTotS in anticipation. My review of the reading experience.

My review on Goodreads

So frankly I was a little worried.

But I didn’t need to be. The enthusiastic Kiwi troupe did the whole play at breakneck speed (with a few improvements of their own!) Their presentation turned the whole thing from being (IIRC) Shakespeare’s most chauvinist work to a knockabout farce where the ladies give as good as they get.

Backdrop in the Bar Area
Everyone But Me!
I went down to what they call The Groundlings (& I would call The Pit) “Petruchio” very friendly & perfect in the role.
Looks like they started with yoga while we were still in the bar!

Speaking of the bar – there was a “slight” difference in glass size this year…

Burglars!

But a good time was had by all. I just wish I could stand for 3 hours, as tickets for The Groundlings were so cheap, but I just have to be realistic.

I’m sure we will be back next year!
