Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare
The sparkling wordplay of Beatrice and Benedick are at the center of this romantic comedy, which also brims with villainy, schemes, and deceit.
One of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, Much Ado about Nothing contrasts the happiness of lovers Claudio and Hero, with the cynicism of sparring partners Beatrice and Benedick, who are united in their scorn for love. Trickery plays a large part in the story, as Beatrice and Benedick are duped into declaring their love for one another, and the dastardly Don John deceives Claudio into believing that Hero has been unfaithful. Set against the backdrop of 1943 in Messina, Italy shortly after the Allied Forces free Sicily from the Nazis, our lovers have much to celebrate and fall in love over! With a score of popular big band songs from the era, we are sure you'll leave the theatre with a smile on your face, and a toe-tapping song in your heart.
