Taming of the Shrew
Another positive review for the North Shore Kiss Me Kate: Matching her intensity is the rakish masculinity of the strikingly handsome Dvorsky as ex-husband, star and director Fred Graham. Dvorsky portrays Petruchio with increasing vigor and ferocious physical manhandling as he attempts to fend off the onstage blows of his infuriated co-star. Dvorsky matches deBenedet's terrific timing, creating a believable rampage of conflicting emotions and delicious physical revenge, or as Shakespeare puts it, "For I am rough and woo not like a babe." His melodious baritone is a perfect foil to her powerful soprano as the sophisticated pair delivers one great Cole Porter hit song after another."

The William Shakespeare Weblog is looking for contributions. If you want to comment or follow-up on something which has been mentioned or you have something which you think might of interest to readers please get in touch. We would particularly like to hear from anyone connected with a production of one of Will's plays for a prospective diary feature. Above all else Shakespeare's words are as relevant now as then and its important for this weblog to reflect that.
