The Taming

October 2 through 18

Our 9th season opens with the East-of-the-Rockies professional premiere of Lauren Gunderson's riotously funny The Taming, a laugh-a-minute mashup inspired by Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew that mixes the rough-and-tumble of contemporary partisan politics with the glitz and glam of the Miss America pageant, and adds some sharply observed truths about the nation’s founding fathers and the Constitutional Convention.
Our production stars Colette Divine, Brooke Gronemeyer and Cate Jo. NOTE: Because of adult situations and language, The Taming is not recommended for young children.
The Taming, an official Artober event, is supported by grants from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
