When a bright-eyed, young assistant stage manager (with a rare condition best described as musical-theater-tourettes) steps into a dysfunctional production of Taming of the Shrew set in caveman times, he assumed all he really needed to succeed in show business was a strong work-ethic and an open heart. He could never have guessed all in store for him on the other side of the rehearsal door. Taming of the Show is a dark farce about all we love, and love to hate, about making theater.
