Broads’ Word Theatre Presents Fifty Shades Of Shrew

Fifty Shades Of Shrew

I am thrilled to announce that I will be a part of Broads’ Word Theatre‘s production of Fifty Shades Of Shrew at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival in June! Here’s what the incredible women of Broads’ Word Theatre have to say about this production: ” ‘Place your hands below your husband’s foot.’ Surely a controversial statement in Shakespeare’s time, in today’s world it is hopelessly misogynistic. Unless…What if Katharina is a submissive in search of her Dominant? What if Bianca is a Dom auditioning subs? With the success of Fifty Shades of Grey, BDSM is front and center in the public consciousness, but is still largely misunderstood.  Broads’ Word Theatre sets Shakespeare’s outdated Taming of the Shrew in a BDSM dungeon, where the all-female cast investigates the dynamics of power and submission with a modern fearlessness.”

Rehearsals for Shrew have already gotten off to a fantastic start, but we need your help! Please help us fund our show through @aimhatchfund (it’s tax deductible!). Any amount would help us out greatly, but if you aren’t able to donate, it would mean the world to us if you could spread the word! Here’s the link to our campaign:

We will be performing at The Lounge Theatre in Los Angeles and tickets go on sale May 1st. You can purchase tickets HERE.
