The Taming of the Shrew

It must be theater weekend at the Quinn home. Tonight Brenda, Emily and I went to the University of SC - Spartanburg - USCS - and watched the Taming of the Shrew. It was a wonderful performance.

Brenda has been reading through Shakespeare's comedies as part of her literature studies - Emily has joined us this year too. This was the first play by Shakespeare that either of the girls had seen. The language was beautiful and I was very happy that Emily was able to follow along without any problem. There were some jokes that sorta went over her head - which was a good thing after hearing them. Brenda gave me a couple of looks - like did Emily hear that? :-) She's such a good big sister. So, we're all a bit wiser after our first of his famous plays, and I think we are all looking forward to finding more locally to attend.
