Excellent! The Caribbean theme helped to make the performance more understandable and colorful!
I thoroughly enjoyed it and have recommended it to all of my friends.

Thoroughly delightful. Having strong connections to the Caribbean, I felt I was back in Bequia. The acting was superb. Am recommending it to my friends.

I'm not the "play" type at all, but I took my date to see this show and have to admit, we loved it! The show really impressed me. The acting was superb and they even interact with the crowd a bit. What added to the play is the theater itself....continued

Description

From Washington City Paper’s 2009 Fall Arts Preview:

“With any luck, Timothy Douglas’s Caribbean update of Much Ado About Nothing will make an even more joyful noise. There’s reason to hope: Douglas made dazzling work out of Robert O’Hara’s uproarious Insurrection: Holding History at Theater Alliance a couple of years back, and his no-nonsense résumé includes the world premiere of August Wilson’s final play, Radio Golf. Bonus good sign: The guy who’ll be playing Benedick, the fast-talking, Beatrice-bashing smart-mouth brought to his knees by love? That would be Howard Overshown, a veteran of shows as diverse as Dael Orlandersmith’s Yellowman and Sarah Ruhl’s Passion Play.” —Trey Graham
