26th Annual Free Shakespeare in the Park: Much Ado About Nothing
Celebrating victory after a hard-fought war, the ladies and gentlemen of Messina renew their own “merry war” of courtship and deceit, love and vengeance. But in this atmosphere of trickery, where new passions mix with old resentments, can they trust their eyes? Their ears? Their hearts? Shakespeare’s wittiest comedy invites us to laugh at love and all the ways it brings out the best (and worst) in us.
