The best Taming I have ever seen
6 May 1999 | by (Atlanta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Shakespeare stories and this is by far the best showing. It was all action, energy, fast and fun. No sets, just a stage and tons of talent. I kick myself when to think I could have made a VHS copy and didn't. I want this on DVD.
