Kiss Me Petruchio

on BBC One London

starring Meryl Streep and Raul Julia
This spirited and hilarious open-air production of The Taming of the Shrew takes place in New York's Central Park. For 23 years the park has been the setting for free theatre performances master-minded by JOSEPH PAPP. His actors are among the best in America: MERYL STREEP , who plays Kate, recently won an Oscar for her performance in the film Kramer vs Kramer.
In this documentary the arguments and intrigues of the play spill out delightfully into the dressing-rooms and even into the audience at the interval.
... a smacker of a programme.
... I delighted in eieru rowdy moment of it. (DAILY MAIL) Directed by WILFORD LEACH
