Much Ado About Nothing

August 8~25

By William Shakespeare Directed by Julianne Boyd

Director Julianne Boyd sets Much Ado in Messina, Sicily, 1930. The strains of jazz and Latin rhythms fill the air as the funloving, confirmed bachelor Benedick (Christopher Innvar) returns home from war to be met by the smart, headstrong Beatrice (Gretchen Egolf) – always ready to do combat with a “merry war” of witty insults. Their love story is set against a darker one of young love between Claudio and Hero, threatened by the machinations of the malicious Don John (Mark H. Dold). At once passionate, sexy and bitingly funny, Much Ado is filled with some of the most brilliant comedic repartee ever written.

Tickets: $20-$58

By Bruce Norris Directed by Giovanna Sardelli

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a provocative and wickedly funny play about race, real estate and American values.

Act Two takes place fifty years later with a black family selling the house to a white family who believe in urban gentrification – or do they? A not-to-be-missed play by one of America’s most original and scathingly honest voices.
