In the information society, media deeply in?uence theater studies and the audience reception. This article examines the three drama cases, from the high elite culture to the popular culture, including Shakespeare's plays The Taming of the Shrew, aided by the BBC's ?lm The Taming of the Shrew, The Merchant of Venice, and the TV soap opera series The Fierce Wife in Taiwan. This paper argues that drama as a medium reflects contemporary society and social realities--from the “taming of the wife” in Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew in the seventeenth century, to “taming of the husband” in Bond in the modern Yu-Shakespeare stage performance, and ?nally to change to “live happily after divorce” in the year 2011 The Fierce Wife TV soap opera. This paper concludes e-generation technology aids theater studies, and drama as one of the important media helps understand contemporary thought and represent culture. From the perspective of e-society, this paper re-measures the contemporary theater research's essence and transformation.
