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

At the end of the performance, I felt like I had an enjoyable night at the theater. Shakespeare is really tough for any actor and most of the actors handled it very capably. My only real complaint would be the actors portraying the slaves Dromio. It was just very painfully obvious that they were trying too hard to be funny in this role. Everything about their acting choices felt very forced and unnatural. While the audience laughed and enjoyed it, it was just very annoying for myself to watch. Actually, some of the comedy in this production felt very forced. But like I said, at the end of the performance, I actually enjoyed it for what it was and felt that a lot of performances were very well don.
The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare’s earliest and shortest plays, is the classic tale of two sets of twins accidentally separated at birth by a shipwreck. In this farcical comedy, their lives come crashing back together through a series of wild mishaps, mistaken identity, accusations, madness and confusion.
Shakespeare’s play has been adapted for opera, stage, screen, and musical theatre.
