Taming of the Shrew

Fenimore Art Museum’s Glimmer Globe Theatre is preparing an exceptional season of live main stage productions in its Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater for the Summer of 2019: In July, we present William Shakespeare’s inflaming Taming of the Shrew, followed by Thornton Wilder’s beloved Our Town in August.  This comes after profoundly successful productions of Macbeth (2015), The Crucible (2016), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2017), Othello (2018), and The Importance of Being Earnest (2018) in the same venue.

Taming of the Shrew is considered one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays,” specifically because it explores women’s role in marriage and society in ways that are at once side-splittingly funny and deeply controversial.  Our interpretation of the play will be playful and bold, tackling the themes head-on so that audiences will be entertained but also provoked to think, to debate, and to question. Michael Henrici will direct and play the male lead, Petruchio, opposite his wife, Danielle Henrici, as Kate.  They will be joined on stage by a superb cast of local actors.


Our audiences best describe their theater experience with us on Facebook:


“It’s mesmerizing – the acting and directing capture the essence of a story of love in difficult times, all against the backdrop of the beautiful lake and the museum. I attended the August 24th performance and was very moved. By any means, go.”


“Was fortunate to see The Crucible on a beautiful night. It was incredible. I was moved to tears. The acting was excellent. We are so fortunate to have this group offer very affordable, quality art!”


“What a great show! Make sure you catch this before the summer is over. I can’t say enough good things about the actors and the show! Phenomenal! Can’t wait to come back and catch another one!”


“My family and I just enjoyed this excellent performance! The characters and story were so engaging and the actors were exceptional! It was a beautiful night to enjoy theater under the stars!”
