This was a joyous, well-acted and lively production of Much Ado. I've seen the play many times, but this was by far the best presentation ever. The actors were all wonderful, although special kudos go to Alex Perez for his role as Dogberry. He practically steals the show whenever he comes on stage. The production design was fantastic, setting it in DC in the Caribbean community was brilliant. The director deserves special praise for his staging of this wonderful play.

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
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
