Fans of free theater, Shakespeare, and amazing female actors have particular reason to rejoice this week. Playbill recently reported that The Public Theater's 2016 Shakespeare in the Park season this summer will feature an all-female rendition of Taming of the Shrew helmed by Phyllida Lloyd, who directed last year's all-female Henry IV at St. Ann's Warehouse. Principal casting has also been announced, so look forward to catching The Good Wife's Cush Jumbo in the role of Katherina and Tony winner Janet McTeer as Petruchio. 

Performances of Taming of the Shrew are free to the public and will begin on May 24th and run through June 26th at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Next up on the season's summer queue will be Troilus and Cressida, directed by Daniel Sullivan. Though Shakespeare in the Park has been a wildly popular New York activity for decades, this season is particularly special as it commemorates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. The program has a long history of offering incredible shows to the public, and we can't wait to add this undoubtedly wonderful production of Taming of the Shrew to that list.
