Suitors are lined up to court the young and beautiful Bianca – daughter of Baptista Minola of Padua. However, Baptista is determined that her older sister, Katherina, known as “Kate the Cursed” for her wild temper must be married first. No man is Padua is willing to court the willful Katherine, until Petruchio, a gentleman of Verona in search of a suitable wife, arrives and sets out to woo her with a vengeance – and does. In this, the original comedic battle of the sexes, beauty and brawn vie for love in a true war of wills, wits and words: Come on and kiss me Kate!”
