ShakesBEERience San Jose offers professional actors unpacking the language in a playful, unique and accessible way in an easy-going, and entertaining environment while you drink, eat and generally have a good time! Hungry? Order some food and eat dinner while you listen to the play! Thirsty? Refill your pint! (The actors certainly will!) Whether you come for the whole reading, or can just stay for one scene, the ShakesBEERience you have is up to you.

“The Taming of the Shrew” on Monday June 30th at 7:00pm at Café Stritch in downtown San Jose will feature professional actors and special guests in one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.Maryssa Wanlass is the hot-tempered Kate and Derek McCaw the equally stubborn Petruchio. And local favorite James Reber plays Christopher Sly, the drunken tinker who watches the play along with the audience, serving as guide and comic relief. Director, actor, writer John McCluggage, former Associate Artistic Director of San Jose Repertory Theatre, and long-time South Bay theater artist, produces and directs the freshest way to experience Shakespeare in San Jose.

 Made possible with support from Silicon Valley Creates and the ShakesBEERience San Jose Members Club. Admission is free but seating is first come first served.
