Much Ado About Nothing
May 23 – June 16, 2013 (no performance May 24)
Tickets go on sale: April 30, 2013
by William Shakespeare
One of Shakespeare's most richly layered romantic comedies, "Much Ado About Nothing" pits one of Shakespeare's sharpest wits, Beatrice, in a romantic tussle with Benedick, one of Shakespeare's most lovable lunkheads. Their hilarious romance of opposites is set against a darker romantic plotline in which the villainous Don John seeks to claim the beautiful Hero for himself or destroy her for everyone else.
