Summary
The four cutting-edge productions in this collection bring Shakespeare alive for a 21st century audience. Macbeth is the chef in a 3-star restaurant; Beatrice and Benedick are rival co-anchors; Titania and Bottom carouse in a tawdry theme resort; and Petruchio sets out to tame the conservative Kate in a politically incorrect marriage of convenience
