How about Patrick Stewart as Kate, with all of the other characters
played by women?

I saw a production where the director had Kate come out at end in P's
clothes and vice versa and it worked very well..she did P lines and he
Kate's.

I'm not sure whether it is cross-dressed or not, but the New York Times
this weekend listed an off-Broadway SHREW directed by Kenneth Nowell
which was billed as a "reverse-gender" production.  Has anyone seen this
production?

Cheers,
