A playful comedy layered with all the rich complexity that comes with Shakespeare’s work, Much Ado About Nothing is a lively and surprisingly timely meditation on gossip, gender roles and the follies of romance. Don Pedro, Claudio and Benedick arrive in the Sicilian port city of Messina after a decisive battlefield victory. As they join in the post-war celebrations at the governor’s estate, Claudio takes a liking to their host’s daughter, Hero. Meanwhile, Benedick engages in another kind of battle with Hero’s cousin, the quick-witted Beatrice. Cupid-like characters conspire to bring our love quartet together, while darker forces seek to tear them apart. Can love really conquer all when the combined powers of deceit, betrayal and envy stand in its way? Much Ado About Nothing is comical, but cautious. Elegant, yet down to earth. It’s playful and undeniably joyful. This is perhaps the most well-known (and beloved) Renaissance romantic comedy in the world.

Directed by Denver Center’s Chris Coleman (Oklahoma!, Twelfth Night), and featuring stage design by Klara Zieglarova (Jersey Boys, Rattlesnake Kate) and music by Tom Hagerman (Sweeney Todd, Twelfth Night), this refreshing take on a 400-year-old classic is not to be missed.
