Performance Dates

This holiday season, fall in love with one of the most romantic comedies ever written, Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Everyone can see that Benedick and Beatrice are meant for each other except Benedick and Beatrice. Hero and Claudio, themselves newly betrothed, conspire to trick them into announcing their feelings and falling for each other. Meanwhile, a bitter and troublesome Don John schemes to destroy Claudio and Hero’s engagement by besmirching Hero’s honor. Touted as “one of the hottest directors to come out of Washington” by The Washingtonian, Ethan McSweeny directs Shakespeare’s classic tale of matched wits and love.
