A number of years ago, I saw a performance of Taming of the Shrew set in
the Wild West.  Tracy Ullman starred.  NYC Central Park was the
location.  Probably other people on this list can supply more details.

A few years ago the NYSF did a T/S set in c.1890 Padua, Texas.  Morgan
Freeman was Petruchio and Tracy Ullman (I think) was Kate.  It wasn't
all that bad taken on its own terms; but it war'nt Shakespeare.

Director John Neville did a 90 minute version of Hamlet in the 1960's.
While he preserved the original language he did say doing Hamlet in 90
minutes was like seeing the play as a western.
