I didn't forget the men

I really hate being limited to 650 words (or so) per review, especially when there is so much going on. For instance, Patrick McManus takes the character of Biondello - normally a bit of a twit - and turns him into an Elizabethan Steven Cojocaru - the fashion guy from ET! He's the best-dressed fellow on stage and makes the most of it comepletely.

Randy Hughson is quite disarming as Hortensio/Litio, especially as he and the Queen have a little something going on between the lines of text that is enchanting, and Juan Chioran makes a perfectly silly Gremio, using his um... costume to the fullest extent and the fullest laughs.

Seeing Shrew again soon, and I expect even more to be revealed.
