Tag Line:  This year’s election is one for the ages! The Taming Promos 02However, it has nothing on The Taming, a crackling modern farce that serves up a heaping dish of good ole Southern fried politics!

Plot: Tweetering, pandashrews, and undying giddiness for James Madison — what else could you expect to find at a Miss America pageant? In this hilarious, raucous, all-female “power-play” inspired by Shakespeare’s Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions.
