Re WS and dark beauty:

Sonnet CXXVII:

In the old age black was not counted fair,
Or if it were, it bore not beauty's name;
But now is black beauty's successive heir,
And beauty slander'd with a bastard shame:
For since each hand hath put on nature's power,
Fairing the foul with art's false borrow'd face,
Sweet beauty hath no name, no holy bower,
But is profaned, if not lives in disgrace.
Therefore my mistress' brows are raven black,
Her eyes so suited, and they mourners seem
At such who, not born fair, no beauty lack,
Slandering creation with a false esteem:
  Yet so they mourn, becoming of their woe,
  That every tongue says beauty should look so.

Re John Perry's quest for a perfect _Shrew_, or at least one that plays
as a quirky love story:  the Stratford Ontario production starring Colm
Feore and Goldy Semple (1987?) played it that way, and, as I recall, so
did a very much earlier production from the 60s starring Kate Reid and
John Colicos.  The more recent production is available on video.
Perhaps Tanya Gough at Yorick knows how to get it?

Alex Bennett, who notes the power of compliments to change the shrew,
should see (again?) Zefferilli's Taming of the Shrew in which Kate
(played by Elizabeth Taylor) is secretly, vulnerably and
uncharacteristically delighted to find herself the object of so much
unexpected kindness on the part of her neighbors whom she espies
bringing gifts for her wedding.
