Wonderful backstage look at Public Theatre production.
For anyone who wondered where the amazing Meryl Streep came from, this remarkable documentry will set you straight. This uneven production of "Taming of the Shrew" which was staged in Central Park, New York by The NY Shakespeare Festival, seems secondary to the materful performances at its heart. Watching the young Meryl Streep in 6" high heels to go face to face with the robust Raul Julia is an amazing site and a set of lovers this play usually lacks. The physical side of the two actors work in amazing, violent, hot, exciting and slightly unsettling all at the same time. This Kate has finally met her match and watching the sparks fly verbally and physically between Streep and Julia is one of the finest performances we as Americans have been privileged to see. What a wonderful record. What an amazing pair of actors.
