Main Street Theater presents The Taming
As part of a nationwide initiative, Main Street Theater will present twp staged readings of Lauren Gunderson's The Taming on Inauguration Day.
Tweetering, pandashrews, and undying giddiness for James Madison - what else could you expect to find at a Miss America pageant? In this hilarious, raucous, all-female "power-play" inspired by Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator's aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate ether trip.
10 am performance will take place at Main Street Theater, while 7 pm performance will be at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.
