The Queens Players' and Secret Theatre's Richard Mazda , once again brings a unique style and concept to a beloved Shakespeare piece, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING with a fantastically talented team of designers; Beth Williams, Helen Ammon, Casey Rowe and John Michael Creenan helping to create a unique Trash Period world who with an extremely talented cast will bring the funny in William Shakespeare's beloved comedy. Our Benedict is noted Actor/Director/Teacher, Alberto Bonill* who collaborated with the director and hosted Clown workshops for the cast. Although there are no red noses, the deep insights that clown elements bring to the show are self-evident.
Balthazar is played by Jamey Grisham who is also our musical director. The songs and music fuse Elizabethan madrigal, bluegrass and classical elements
Mazda's Much Ado takes us to a street strewn with boxes where Leonato's cardboard dwelling is the best on the street and where everyday objects are casually thrown away.
In our repurposed world everyday scrap becomes a crucial letter and the abstracted background compliments dazzling verbal duels between Benedick and Beatrice. The language of the play reveals hilarious double-entendres that drop at a cracking pace, which shows us Shakespeare's keen sense of humor.
