Laughs abound at Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival’s summer season with Shakespeare’s uproarious battle of the sexes, The Taming of the Shrew. The only thing that stands between Bianca and a bevy of eligible suitors is her quick-tempered, elder sister Katherina. That is until fortune-hunting Petruchio takes up the challenge to “tame” Kate and make her his wife. A madcap marriage and much mayhem ensues in a beguiling battle of wits and wills between the sexes which ultimately reveals an unlikely romance. Can love tame a shrewish heart and surprise an unbridled bachelor? Back by popular demand, this production will include seating sections on stage – creating an immersive experience for audiences.
Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival’s production of the Tony-winning rock ‘n’ roll tribute Million Dollar Quartet will transport you to a magical moment of music history. On December 4, 1956, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley fatefully found themselves together in a Memphis recording studio. The historic rock ‘n’ roll jam session that resulted was electrifying. Step back in time to experience this irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets and celebrations – which boasts powerhouse performances and an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, R&B and country hits, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog” and more.
