Subject: 	A Notable Amateur "Shrew" in New Jersey

I just saw an amateur "Taming of the Shrew" at the Circle Players in 
Piscataway, NJ (<URL:http://circleplayers.com/>) that I thought I should 
mention here, as it has one more weekend to go. It's flawed, of course, 
as any amateur production will inevitably be, but in some respects I 
really thought it the most thoroughly satisfactory performance of 
"Shrew" I can recall, dodging all the many bullets a production has to 
dodge today without compromising the play's integrity.

(Mandatory full disclosure: Paul Salvatoriello and I, he being the 
Petrucchio in this production, performed together in a "Midsummer 
Night's Dream" by the same company, two years ago.)
