C Theatre presents their latest Shakespearean adaptation, Taming of the Shrew, breakfast included, of course. Unbelievably, it is Shakespeare for Breakfasts fifteenth year at the fringe, and it continues to be an absolute crowd pleaser.
Once again, C Theatre has taken a classic, modernized it (indeed, Kate is a tough girl Avril Lavigne clone), kept some classic lines, thrown in some catchy song lyrics, and made it completely audience-interactive. It is a formula that has served them well in the past and has not yet gone out of style.
People who go see Shakespeare for Breakfast should not go with the intention of having their lives changed or seeing fantastic Shakespearean performances. Rather, folks should go expecting to see five very charming actresses make an audience laugh first thing in the morning (certainly not an easy task with this reviewer in the house). Sometimes, there is nothing more satisfying than being surrounded by a happy audience.
