Audience Reviews for The Taming of the Shrew
while I prefer the style of the Liz Taylor version, I enjoyed this and found it seemed to me more traditional
As I've said elsewhere, just because it's Shakespeare does not guarantee you will love it, and just because the BBC produces it does not mean it will be great. Not even the witty presence of John Cleese can save this entropically mired and muckily wrought production of The Taming of the Shrew, possibly my least favorite of Shakespeare's plays. If you only see one production, make it Taylor and Burton. At least there is a joyful energy there, rather than the endured tedium to the end of this one.
