The Taming

Queens Theatre Presents
Nov 7Nov 10, 2019
ByLauren Gunderson


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 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. Here’s lookin’ at you, America.

CONTENT: This show contains mature language and themes.

RUNNING TIME: 90 minutes, no intermission.

TICKETS: $6 Student/$12 Public
