Theatre for a New Audience has announced casting for its upcoming production of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, to run March 18-April 21 at The Duke on 42nd Street. Arin Arbus will direct.
In Shakespeare’s play, when forced to marry a brash young gold-digger so that her sweeter, younger sister may marry for love, the temperamental Katherine proves to be more than Petruchio bargained for.
The cast will star Maggie Siff, known for her work on Sons of Anarchy and Mad Men, as Kate as well as Andy Grotelueschen as Petruchio. Also in the cast are Varín Ayala (Biondello) Denis Butkus (Lucentio), Paul L. Coffey (lord), Matthew Cowles (Christopher Sly), Olwen Fouéré (hostess and the widow), John Christopher Jones (Gremio), John Keating (Tranio), Robert Langdon Lloyd (Baptista), Peter Maloney (Vincentio), Jonathan Mastro (pianist), Saxon Palmer (Hortensio), John Pankow (Grumio), and Kathryn Saffell (Bianca).
The design team will include Donyale Werle (set design), Marcus Doshi (lighting design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Michael Friedman (original music), and Doug Elkins (choreography).
