Is anyone a match for the brash and strong-willed Katherine? The dashing adventurer Petruchio thinks he's up to the challenge. Two of the sexiest figures in all of world theatre set off sparks in a clash of wills that is as bold as it is uproarious. Shakespeare's masterful comedic take on the battle of the sexes turns everything we think about love, marriage, and gender on its head.

Shakespeare's most joyful and popular comedy. Filled with magic, humor, music, and spectacle, the merriment unfolds in an enchanted forest where fairies play tricks on unsuspecting lovers and bumbling actors are transformed beyond their wildest dreams.

SAN DIEGO - Shakespeare Festival at The Old Globe through September. The Shakespeare Festival is held at the 615-seat outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre in Balboa Park nestled among beautiful eucalyptus trees. It operates during The Old Globe's Summer Festival (July-September). Outdoor stadium seating, dress warmly when attending performances.

Set against a backdrop of spectacular Balboa Park, nestled among beautiful eucalyptus trees, the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre has become a favorite with Globe patrons. The outdoor theatre operates during The Old Globe's Summer Festival (July-September) and is named after Lowell Davies, a former Board President and a major Old Globe supporter.

The Old Globe Theatre was modeled after Shakespeare’s Old Globe in London for Shakespeare plays as part of the California Pacific International Exposition in  1935. After the exposition the non-profit San Diego Community Theatre leased the theatre and adjacent buildings from the City of San Diego. This arrangement  continues today.
