Much Ado About Nothing
One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, Much Ado About Nothing spins a dizzying web of romantic and marital intrigue that forms a background for crackling verbal wit. Returning triumphant from war, Prince Don Pedro and his band of soldiers stop at a wealthy landowner’s estate to unwind and instruct their assistants to hold any messenger pigeons. Young soldier Claudio quickly falls in love with Hero, the estate owner’s daughter. Meanwhile, however, confirmed bachelor Benedick trades barbs with Hero’s cousin, Beatrice, while barely concealed attraction bubbles beneath the surface. The arcadian idyll threatens to come apart at the seams when Don Juan—Don Pedro’s illegitimate brother who got his dad’s evil genes—conspires to ruin Claudio and Hero’s wedding. <p>
The Theatre Project
There’s growth as an actor, and then there’s growth as a human being—but for the founders of The Theatre Project, there’s no difference between the two. Emphasizing that actors are indeed ever-evolving human beings and not, as previously thought, aliens practicing how to be human beings, The Theatre Project has transformed into more than a theater company. Driven by a creative ensemble of artists who’ve banded together to revamp the modern theatergoing experience, it has become an organism. With fresh adaptations such as a take on 4.48 Pyschosis, the Project has earned the title of “Adventurous New Company” from The Villager, and its world-premiere productions have been rewarded with sold-out shows and have inspired Downtown Magazine to hail the Project as “one to watch in the next year.” Yet, with each subsequent year, it continues to remain one to watch, as it puts imagination and teamwork into brand-new works and creative interpretations of the classics.<p>
