Taming of the Shrew at the Globe. Two stars

The Globe

The Globe

I love the Globe and it is a wonderful setting, but this all-female production was sadly lacking. It started with an embarrasingly bad drunk scene and I feared it would be a cringeworthy evening, but it did improve. Somehow there was little real connection between the characters – not helped by them playing a number of roles each so it was hard to keep track – but some fine individual performances. Unfortunately they were not enough to carry this play which was directed as a farce rather than a story with high comedy moments and had me at times thinking it was an amateur production.
“If I be waspish, best beware my sting.” Two stars.
