Taming of Sue, The

SPOOF/FARCE. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. When her favorite TV show is canceled, a spoiled, rich girl tries to direct a play within a play but faces numerous obstacles including a live studio audience, a love triangle, and a “regular” guy who likes to dress up like a shrew (the rodent type). Then there’s a crazy person who thinks she’s a princess, a guy who doesn’t want to help care for an egg named Herbert, and a girl who likes to eat breakfast burritos. The zaniness never ends in this crazy, madcap play!
