In Much Ado About Nothing, we meet two of Shakespeare's most dazzling characters, Beatrice and Benedick, and before we know it we are caught up in their merry war. Their prickly romance is entwined with the tale of a younger pair of lovers, Hero and Claudio, whose lightning attraction to each other causes the brooding Don John to plot mischief against them by sullying Hero's reputation.  This vibrant and giddy celebration of life and romance will introduce you to these lovers, and to a host of Shakespeare's villains, clowns, and delightfully eccentric characters.     In Much Ado About Nothing, we meet two of Shakespeare's most dazzling characters, Beatrice and Benedick, and before we know it we are caught up in their merry war.
