Photo Flash: First Look at What Dreams May Co Theatre's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, Beg. Tonight
After receiving praise from audiences and critics alike for their smash hit productions of Hamlet and Macbeth in 2013, What Dreams May Co Shakespeare explores the dangers and the delights of love. It's risks, it's rewards, it's passion and it's price. Join the company for their 2014 season as they bring to life two couples whose tales embody all these qualities...with uproarious laughter, with unrestrained joy, and with unfathomable sorrow. First up...Much Ado About Nothing. Scroll down to see some pictures from the production!
Director Nicole Schalmo brings Beatrice and Benedick's merry war of words to small town USA, where this tale of slander and scandal might very well have been pulled from the headlines in present day Middle America. Costume and set designs reflect the Midwestern feel and help to shine a present-day light on the gender and socioeconomic themes that help drive each character. Prepare for a hilarious and heartwarming journey as What Dreams May Co once again holds the mirror up to nature.
The cast of Much Ado About Nothing features Meghan Blakeman, Lauren Marie Callen, Andrew Dahreddine, Gregg Ellson, Jonathan Emerson, Kate Fallon, Kenny Fedorko, Sam Gibbs, Aimee Marcelle, Kelly McCready, Isaac Allen Miller, Chrissy Sheehan, Rafael Svarin, and Gonzalo Trigueros
