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

Story line was very interesting. Set design was excellent. Costumes gave insight into each character's personality. Performers were fine actors. However, we have the same remark for Miles Anderson, who played Leonardo, in every production (3) we have seen him in, his diction is great but his voice does not project very far beyond the footlights, especially upstairs where we were sitting last night. Much of his dialog is lost and increasing his volume does not help (he shouted in an effort to project which made it even more difficult to understand), it is a placement problem with his voice. The scratchiness to his is not a problem, just the lack of projecting. After 3 tries we will after to forego any future productions in which he performs. It is a shame because his acting abilities are excellent and there are exercises to correct the problem.
