Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing is a modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic comedy about two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a clever way with words. Winner of the National Board of Review's Top Ten Independent Films award, the star-studded film features Amy Acker (as Beatrice), Alexis Denisof (as Benedick), and Nathan Fillion (as Dogberry). The Bard's beloved comedy comes to life in this black and white masterpiece that the Chicago Sun-Times calls "swanky, sexy, and sophisticated, as bracing as a dry martini poured from a silver shaker on a summer night."
"Our Theater offered performances under the stars when we began over two decades ago," said Artistic Director Jim Helsinger. "As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we're thrilled to revisit our roots and bring Shakespeare back outdoors."
Much Ado About Nothing runs 109 minutes and is rated PG-13 for some sexuality and brief drug use.

The Ivanhoe Bike Valet tent will be located on the lawn and operating from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. All cyclists must have a photo ID to drop off and pick up their bicycles. Donations are encouraged but not required, with all proceeds benefitting future IVMS cycling initiatives.
