This remarkably modern Shakespearean comedy revolves around two intertwined love stories: one caustically funny, between Beatrice and Benedick, and, the other, between Claudio and Hero, poignantly sweet.  These loves play out with an explosion of witty banter as victorious soldiers returning from war set their sights on the peacetime pleasures of merrymaking and romance in a jaunty world of aristocratic artifice. However, when false information leads one proud nobleman to cruelly denounce his beloved on their wedding day, the verbal sparring sours into private warfare. In this powerful comedy, Shakespeare makes you laugh, but also breaks your heart – and then magically puts it back together again as if it were all “much ado about nothing.”
