It's an evening of mischief and merriment as Intrepid Shakespeare Company presents the original battle of the sexes, Much Ado About Nothing. This witty romantic comedy shows how love brings out both the best and worst in us. Fun-loving, confirmed bachelor Benedick returns from a victory at war only to find himself caught up in another battle: a war of wits and words with the acid-tongued, headstrong Beatrice. Though they've each sworn off romance, their "merry war" of clever insults reveals the growing attraction between them. Meanwhile, Benedick's fellow soldier Claudio is head over heels for Hero, the governor's daughter. They will soon be wed ... if the treacherous Don John doesn't ruin everything first. At once passionate, sexy and blindingly funny, Much Ado About Nothing is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written. Learn More

We left during the intermission...we just weren't entertained by the content of the story + the smoking during the show was hitting our sinuses. Having said that, personally ~ I would have stayed for the rest of the production but was outnumbered by the people I was with.

Very engaging performance, difficult dialog delivered diligently...and expertly. I was pleasantly surprised by the ensemble on the stage and by the helpful and friendly theatre staff. I am glad I gave up watching the Chargers lose and attended...continued
They’re gonna party like it’s 1982! It’s the dawn of a new era: the Reagan era. And the Counter-Culture’s kids are coming of age in New York City. Hilarious, insightful and poignant, This Is Our Youth shows 48 hours in the lives of three kids caught in the moment between adolescence and adulthood when the ideals and values inherited from their parents will guide them toward self-discovery or push them to self-destruction.
By Kenneth Lonergan (screenwriter of the films “Analyze This” and “You Can Count on Me”)
