Much Ado About Nothing – Overview

Much Ado About Nothing

Feb 5 – 16, 2019 | Historic Theatre, The Cultch

Classic Chic Productions is presenting Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, directed by Rebecca Patterson (Queen’s Company, NY), at the Cultch, in the Historic Theatre as part of their Femme Series in February 2019.

Set in a mesmerizing theatrical world, this deadly serious and sublimely ridiculous story—of soldiers in love and women confined by tradition—is a bold and playful romp through the extremes of desire and ambition, loyalty and redemption.
