GableStage (a professional theatre located at The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables) brings a high energy and tightly edited version of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew to The Seminole Theatre! The production, in collaboration with the What if Works Inc, is under the direction of FIU Associate Professor, Phillip M Church. It features 7 dynamic performers—all FIU graduates—in a one-hour adaptation of the classic work.

The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy believed to have been written between 1590 and 1592. The main plot depicts the courtship of Petruchio and Katherina—the headstrong, stubborn “shrew”. Through various psychological torments, Petruchio is able to “tame” Katherina into becoming his bride. The subplot involves a competition between suitors for, Bianca—Katherina’s more desirable sister. The tale itself has been adapted numerous times for stage, screen, opera, ballet, and musical theatre with the most famous being Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate and the high school comedy film 10 Things I Hate About You.
The adaptation features aspects of Commedia dell Arte, “slapstick” and “physical” theatre. It is a great introduction to Shakespeare and theatre!

Progressive traditionalist Lee Ann Womack has sung for Presidents, the Concert for the Nobel Prize and Maya Angelou’s Celebration of Joy Rising. More importantly, the Grammy-winner built a career seeking songs that slice life wide open to let the pain, the emptiness, the rage and the desire pour out.

A Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year, she’s also won the prestigious Album of the Year for There’s More Where That Came From, plus a pair of Single of the Years for “I May Hate Myself in the Morning” and “I Hope You Dance.” I Hope You Dance sold over 6 million albums; the title track topped multiple charts in multiple formats around the globe.

The East Texan is a duet partner of choice for Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Dr. John, Ralph Stanley, Buddy Miller, George Strait, Jim Lauderdale and Willie Nelson. A featured vocalist on Miller’s Silver Strings project, Rodney Crowell and Mary Karr’s Kin and music supervisor Randall Poster’s critically acclaimed Divided & United, Womack’s soprano has a purity that rivals Dolly Parton and an ache that suggests Emmylou Harris at her most haunted.
