Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s most popular and enduring comedies. The central characters, Beatrice and Benedick, are thorny, intelligent, witty and hopelessly bad at love. A battle royale ensues in a hilarious attempt to resist their overpowering mutual attraction that makes Much Ado such a timeless story of romance, suspicion and restoration. 

Seating for Shakespeare in the Park is FREE and open to all on a first come first serve basis. No reservations are required!

A limited number of pre-reserved seating options are now available for purchase (some exclusions apply).
