Comment:	RE: SHK 19.0063 Petruchio's Blasphemy

As I reported earlier, USF is producing Taming of the Shrew as our BRIT 
production this year. It opens Feb. 21st, so a final report will have to 
wait. But in conversation with the director, he revealed that his 
antipathy toward Petruchio is so start, his behavior so heinous, the he 
(the director) has decided to kill him (Petruchio) at the end of the play.

There are some other facets to the production that may prove of interest 
to some, but I'll wait until I see it on stage before saying more.
