QUEER CLASSICS PRESENTS "The Taming of the Shrew: An Exploration of Gender Expression"

P 2349 i 3129537

Get ready for a hilarious blast of a bash! This 1950s Padua might be the ultimate nowheresville, but kookie Petruchio and oddball Kate’s love was made in the shade. Come make the scene with Shakespeare and the artists of Queer Classics.

In modern times, Queer Classics’ Kate and Petruchio might identify as trans*, but the 1950’s are a completely different world. In this fresh and sexy take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy, QC explores the characters’ expression of gender in a time before there were labels to define it.

‘This event is presented as part of the City of West Hollywood’s One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival, which this year celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Cityhood with the theme ‘[email protected], [email protected]’. Events take place from Harvey Milk Day, May 22nd, to the end of June, with a special full day of theatre in Plummer Park on June 27. For more info and to see a full roster of events please visit
