Those interested in the Streep/Julia Shrew might be able to obtain a copy from
Audio-Visual Services, Kent State University Libraries, Kent State Univ.,
Kent, OHio 44242, USA. I know they had the tape several have mentioned, and
I believe it's available through their rental program.

Does it seem to other people that this play has received a remarkable
number of productions in recent years?  Each semester in my introductory
Shakespeare class I let the students vote on what plays we'll read, and
they've chosen Shrew almost every time in recent years, but not very often
before that.
 
And if there have been a lot of Shrews, is that a good thing or a bad?  I
saw a particularly depressing one this summer at Stratford-upon-Avon,
which was very pc on the question of the class hierarchy but did not
interrogate the gender hierarchy at all: Kate's taming was
represented as a joyous enlightenment for her, and the frame story was
rewritten to include another troubled marriage (among characters
represented as modern) in order to universalize the patriarchal moral.
