ARTS Pick: Taming of the Shrew

Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew is a play within a play that centers on a dysfunctional courtship (defined as misogynistic by modern standards), where subordinate female behavior from leading lady Katherina outsmarts psychological torture by her male suitor, Petruchio, all in the name of comedic farce.

Friday, December 29 & Sunday, December 31. $29-54, times vary. American Shakespeare Center, 10 S. Market St., Staunton. 540-885-5588.
