This production will be set in the early 20th century, on the veranda of a family home owned by one of Sicily's most powerful men. In this idyllic atmosphere, filled with music and sunshine, the sudden appearance of soldiers returning from battle brings romance--and an undercurrent of danger. In this world of honor and passion, two sets of lovers--Benedick and Beatrice, and the younger couple Claudio and Hero--determine their futures.
In addition to the previously reported Michael Cumpsty, who will play Benedick, the show will star Tony Award nominee Kathryn Meisle as Beatrice.
The company will also feature John Ahlin (Dogberry), Tom Bloom (Leonato), Connor Carew (Friar Francis , Verges), Sean Dugan (Don John), Christopher Hirsh (Borachio), Tia James (Margaret), Kevin Kelly (Conrade), Nick LaMedica (Balthasar, Watchman), Aaron Clifton Moten (Claudio), Mary Anne O'Brien (Ursula, Sexton), Steven Skybell (Don Pedro), Annapurna Sriram (Hero), and Zeke Zaccaro (Antonio, Watchman).
The creative team will include scenic designer Tony Straiges, costume designer Mattie Ullrich, lighting designer Brian Tovar, and sound designer and composer Mark Bennett.
