Saw “Taming of the Shrew” last night at Buena Vista Winery and we highly recommend it. Kate Kennedy is back directing Shakespeare in Buena Vista’s courtyard around the fountain, it felt like 10 years ago when we first arrived in Sonoma and discovered her wonderful productions there.
For some years, with changing owners at the winery, Kate’s Avalon Players were no longer in residence. Now, with the community-friendly Jean-Charles Boisset in the Buena Vista owner’s chair, Kate and Shakespeare are back. The wonderful production, with a very talented, enthusiastic and entertaining cast, will be there for two more weekends, and you can only wonder at the finale, who is the real “shrew”?
We easily got our tickets on line, plus the table-style seating offered great picnicking prior to the play. It was a perfect Sonoma summer evening.
