I thank Lysbeth for this recommendation, and would appreciate reviews 
from anyone who's watched the DVD of the ACT production.  My local 
library doesn't have it, but if I read further positive comments about 
it, I may drop a hint to Santa Claus. :-)

Jack Heller asks about shrew-taming plays: it might be worth looking at 
the two parts of _The Honest Whore_ (the first Dekker and Middleton, the 
second Dekker alone), which explore the viability of extreme patience as 
taming method.
