Guthrie Theater presents Shakespeare's romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing
, directed by Joe Dowling, whose staging of the play shows that love is not only for the young. It's the story of two couples: young lovers Claudio and Hero and middle-aged Benedick (played by Daniel Gerroll, A Christmas Carol
) and Beatrice (Irish stage and screen actress Dearbhla Molloy), sworn enemies who become the victims of a clever scheme. In a world where everyone eavesdrops, meddles and minds others' business, Benedick's friends fool him into believing Beatrice loves him, and the women do the same for Beatrice. Thus begins their entertaining journey to finding true love late in life. This charming exploration of love and marriage, friendship and honor, delivers music, dancing and merriment, proving that falling in love is for everyone, young and old.
