Lay It Out Events and Portland’s Northwest Classical Theatre Company bring the Bard back to Bend for three performances of one of his most beloved comedies. Much Ado About Nothing features some of the Bard’s favorite themes, including trysts between lovers, battles of the sexes, deception, love, and marriage. It also features two of Shakespeare’s most enjoyable characters, Beatrice and Benedick. Will this quarreling duo finally admit their attraction to each other, or will their love of trickery keep them apart? Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most in-depth explorations of character, and one of his most enduring love stories. The setting of Sicily, Italy will provide a beautiful set ad is sure to be on of the most romantic evenings of the summer.
