Maui OnStage takes pains to send Shakespeare back to the future with sexy SHREW

May 19, 2011
By MARAEL BRADLEY - For The Maui News (mauibackstage@gmail.com) , The Maui News

Maui OnStage's "The Taming of the Shrew" is gutsy, sexy and totally unique. Director Cassandra Wormser envisions a futuristic Padua City, located on the planet Lombardy in the solar system Italia X, with an edgy comic-book feel. As if the space-age, manga-inspired set (designed by Gregory K. Jones) and costumes (Larissa Williams) are not novel enough, Wormser adds some even bigger kinks by changing the father, Baptista, into a mother (Lauren Burgess), and Bianca's lover, Lucentio, into lesbian "Lucentia" (Lehua Simon) and staging a BDSM power struggle between "The Shrew" Kate (Genie Calagna) and her "Tamer" Petruchio (Curtis "Chino" LaForge).
