Lean & Hungry Theater: Taming Of The Shrew

Lean & Hungry Theater presents a very special evening of William Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew." This Spanish-infused adaptation is set within a radio-novela in Mexico. The Woman's National Democratic Club is proud to host this live broadcast in the Whittemore House, the historic home of Eleanor Roosevelt.

Javier Rivera, the director of Taming of the Shrew/La Fierecilla Domada, was in attendance to talk about the production in a panel discussion moderated by WAMU Program Director Mark McDonald.
