The Opposite of a Spagetti Western...


Early in his career, Clint Eastwood made a number of Western movies that were produced and directed by Italians and shot in the Andalusia region of Spain. These films became known as "Spaghetti Westerns. " Well, director Drew Keddington has turned the tables and, as can only happen on the Empress Theatre stage, we're producing the opposite of a Spaghetti Western.

William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew has been transformed into one of the funniest westerns you could possibly imagine, complete with a bit of western music that will surprise and delite. If you like Shakespeare, you won't want to miss this interpretation of the Bard's classic; If you are more of a Clint Eastwood fan, even better! Fersooth!
But what do we call it? "Hamburger Romance," "Taco Eastern," ... Heck, I don't know, so let us know what you think in the comments!
Reserve your seats now! Or better yet, call the box office at (801) 347-7373 and order your 2009 season tickets now!

Why, thank you Joline, but... If you want to see something that really rocks, you need to come see the set for Taming of the Shrew.

I watched the last tech rehearsal on Wednesday. This show rocks.
