I went to the dress rehearsal for ASP’s Taming of the Shrew on Tuesday, and it was huge fun. I really like what they’ve done with this show. Die-hard feminist detractors of this play will probably still find it lacking in redemptive qualities, but Sarah Newhouse is a strong Kate, and there is a fairly clear “this-story-is-a-male-invention” frame around the whole thing that helps. ASP continues their strong tradition of musical experimentation, lively choreography, and excellent comic performances.
Here are my sketches – somewhat but not entirely chronological, because I was jumping between different digital and traditional media.
