WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

irector Julianne Boyd sets Much Ado in Messina, Sicily, in the mid-1930s. The strains of jazz and Latin rhythms fill the air as the fun-loving, confirmed bachelor Benedick (Christopher Innvar) returns home from war to be met by the smart, headstrong Beatrice (Gretchen Egolf) - always ready to do combat with a "merry war" of witty insults. Their love story is set against a darker one of young love between Claudio and Hero, threatened by the machinations of the malicious Don John (Mark H. Dold). At once passionate, sexy and bitingly funny, Much Ado is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written. See why many call Much Ado the precursor to the screwball comedy.
