This version of the the Taming of the Shrew was a lot of fun to watch and surprisingly touching at moments. It was hard to get past the "Moaning Myrtle" aspect of the actress playing Katherine, and the elevator scene when she first meets Petruchio was sadly inferior to Shakespeare's version of this meeting. But some other changes were for the better. Bianca, for instance, is hilarious in her self-absorption and subtle arrogance.
