Much Ado About Nothing

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Laura Braza

January 10 – February 12, 2023

Quadracci Powerhouse


Love, Laughter and 1990s Nostalgia 

Laughter, witty wordplay and 1990s nostalgia come together in this joyful and cherished classic, one of Shakespeare's most delightful romantic comedies. Fast-flying gossip and thick-headed pride threaten to bring down the bash of the decade as a fairy-tale marriage quickly turns from swoon to scandal. With honor and friendship on the line, sharp-tongued adversaries Beatrice and Benedict put their savage battle of wits (and hearts) on hold to restore order, charting them on a collision course that might just lead to true love. Hilarious slapstick, mistaken identities, and a town full of well-meaning (but mostly ridiculous) characters lead to sheer theatrical delight on the Quadracci Powerhouse stage.
