This is the perfect show to introduce to kids just starting out on Shakespeare, as well as adults wishing to have more verse and prose in their lives.

One of Shakespeare’s classic comedies, “Much Ado About Nothing” is the original rom com. Lovestruck Claudio meets lovestruck Hero, and a wedding is planned. Meanwhile, Claudio’s friend Benedick finds his ex, Beatrice, and bickering ensues. But when the villainous Don John interferes, one couple breaks up, another gets together, and a mysterious death occurs, breaking the hearts of all. Will this flirty comedy have a happy ending for everyone?
