Verona gentleman Petruchio attempts to turn headstrong Katherina into an obedient bride in Shakespeare’s ultimate battle of the sexes, The Taming of the Shrew. The American Shakespeare Company goes beyond the main comedy with the Bard’s Induction, creating a play within a play as drunken tinker Christopher Sly is duped into believing himself a nobleman watching Kate and Petruchio’s reluctant love story unfold.

Friday 1/9. Pay-what-you-will, 7:30pm. Blackfriars Playhouse, 10 S. Market St., Staunton. (540) 885-5588.
