Much Ado About Nothing

Sunday, July 21, 2013 at 6:00pm to 8:30pm

F.R. Newman Arboretum Cornell Plantations

The Ithaca Shakespeare Company presents one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies outdoors at Cornell Plantations!

When Don Pedro and his soldiers arrive in sunny Messina for some much-needed R&R, love blossoms and Beatrice and Benedick rekindle their merry war of wit. Don Pedro attempts to out-do Cupid by tricking Beatrice and Benedick into falling in love with each other, while Don John and his drunken henchmen scheme to ruin the marriage of their hated rival. 

Flamenco music, large-scale dances, romance, wit and wordplay, one of Shakespeare's smartest heroines, and the most hopeless night watchmen ever imagined come together in this brilliant romantic comedy.
