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
