I really did enjoy the show last night. The selection of the cast was really great. Loved Tia J. and was blown away with so many of the cast. The selection of the daughters was so believable. – Jenny Lind
Let me just say right now, it was a great time, and the cast was phenomenal. I'm always excited to see them perform, because I know that they'll be giving me efforts that rival anything on Broadway. Last night? No exception. They took a good story and made it even better. Do yourself a favor: go see it. Seriously. – Don Waugh
Awesome preview last night – this is a performance to see! – Carolyn Day
Good work on Taming of the Shrew, directed by David Jenkins – Michael LeVan

Jobsite's The Taming of the Shrew [was] excellent. Great way to end an amazing season. Looking forward to the next one. – Kim Smallheer
This show is fantastic. If you thought you couldn't *do* Shakespeare, please give this a try. It's a very funny show made all the more enjoyable by the cast. And, no, I am not related to or friends with (yet!) any cast members - just a very satisfied season ticket holder!! :) – Linda Brandt
You people should go. It's a great show with some really strong performances. It was a great take on what to do with the set, and the characters were great. This play is what black box theatre is really all about. – Dave Pritchard
Great show, folks. I truly enjoyed it. – Misha Dawaioser

The Taming of the Shrew – Creative Loafing
'Spicy meatball' stars in Shakespeare's 'Shrew' – Tampa Tribune
"... quick-witted and engaging.... [Katrina Stevenson's] performance proved Jenkins' point of equality between the sexes.... This production conveyed an everyman's humor and a sound understanding of the playwright's intent. – Tampa Tribune
"...amped up and irreverent without being disrespectful ... every member of the nine-person cast (mostly Jobsite regulars) has truly great moments, and the physical comedy is spot-on throughout." – St. Petersburg Times
"...the cast is dedicated and full-force ... fun, raucous, and involved. ..." – What Ya Gonna Do? – Theatre Edition
"A highly talented ensemble cast ... a wonderful night of theatre. Even if you fell asleep while reading Romeo and Juliet in freshmen English, Jobsite has a way to entertain everyone who comes to see the show." – OnStageTampa
