I did not see the production, so I may be speaking out of turn, but from
my experience with NYSF, even in their staging out of period, they are
always quite faithful to Shakespeare's text, so why "arn't" that
Shakespeare?

New Stage in Jackson, Mississippi, did a western Shrew a few years back.

To add to the list of western Shrews, I recall an actor during a
talkback in Stratford, Ontario, mentioning that he had done something
similar for Tyrone Guthrie in an early season.  I'm not sure if the idea
ever moved beyond the rehearsal stage, however.

Cheers,
Sean.
