Disappointing - BBC Shakespeare Collection: The Taming of The Shrew review by JG

Spoiler Alert
27/10/2014

I rented this to see how John Cleese did with Petruchio. He was good and I don't mind the studio-feel to the production; that's what you expect from these BBC productions of the 70s-80s (although they could have done more with the studio floor). The problem is that, especially in the opening scenes before the main characters arrive, the lines are gabbled at such a pace they are difficult to follow. So difficult we gave up and fast forwarded. On the whole I didn't like Miller's direction at all.
