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

A fun one man show full of pop culture references and hilarious dialogue (with unseen and unheard characters). The show is about a young man struggling to reconcile his real-life as an underappreciated tech guy with his fantasy-life as leader of an online army of computer nerds. At the end of the show, the actor engages with the audience about the development of his show and about the dichotomy of the modern world between our human selves and our online personas. It was a very enjoyable and thought-provoking afternoon.

It’s the most important day of “computer-gaming-geek” Steve Smolinski’s life. He’s about to save humanity from destruction at the hands of bloodthirsty elves … which would be a lot easier if he didn’t have to do it from his cubicle at work. In a tour-de-force one-man show, GAM3RS captures the chaos that ensues when one’s virtual world and real life collide. Written and performed by USD/Globe grad, Brian Bielawski and co-directed by Walter G. Meyer, GAM3RS premiered to critical praise at the New York Fringe Festival.
