Much Ado About Nothing

Director: Marc Destefano
Writer: William Shakespeare

Show Number: 280


Much Ado About Nothing is a sparkling Renaissance romantic comedy set on the estate of a wealthy Sicilian governor. When the estate is visited by a prince and his soldiers, the governor's daughter Hero is soon courted by one of the gallant young men named Claudio. However, the prince’s half-brother Don John, the Common Enemy of all Happy Endings, is determined to stop the wedding. With the nuptials set, and with the estate unaware of Don John’s plans, Claudio and the genial prince turn their attention to igniting a romance between Beatrice and Benedick, both resolutely single and constantly engaged in a war of wits. Scheming, eavesdropping, and mischief ensue.
