Once again, Utah is a paradise for Shakespeare fans. My favorites this year were the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s production of Henry V and the Utah Children’s Theatre production of The Taming of the Shrew. The former production was a fitting conclusion to the Henriad series that the Shakespeare Festival had produced since fall 2013. Henry V was truly the show that had it all: gorgeous costumes, superb acting, and flawless direction. All of these elements combined to strengthen one of Shakespeare’s finest scripts. The Taming of the Shrew at UCT was a delight from beginning to end. I adored the chemistry between James Parker and Emily Trulson Parker, a real-life husband and wife playing Petruchio and Katerina. ... —Russell Warne, UTBA staff
