Daily Rehearsal: 'Taming of the Shrew' and 'Turn of the Screw' not the same play

April 6, 2012

1. "For he's a jolly good Fela!" proclaims an email I received from Hot Tix. Love it. It's at the Oriental Theater right now until April 15.

2. Coming up at UP (will that ever get old? We're pun-heavy today.): Weekends are devoted to Robert Kelly, Gary Owen, Tony Rock and Kumail Nanjiani for April.

3. Tony Hernandez, the creator of Cascabel, seems to have injured himself multiple times - and alsogotten a response to a snarky tweet directed at TimeOut's review of the production from Mike Daisey himself -- in the span of a few days. Worlds colliding!

4. Did you miss the full hour of performance-related talk on 848 this morning? It's all online.

5. Turn of the Screw is at First Folio and it is NOT my favorite Shakespeare play, despite what this headline says in the Sun-Times.
