WHERE: Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre"I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me." — Act 1, Scene 1 Directed by Jim Helsinger Romantic, raucous and razor-sharp, the Hamlet of Shakespeare comedies strikes hilarious chords even as it reveals timeless truths about love, change and acceptance. The men have returned victorious from war, but the merry sparring — and sparks — between Benedick the stubborn bachelor and self-assured Beatrice have just begun. A war of weapons followed by a witty war of words, Much Ado balances ingeniously on the knife edge between comedy and tragedy. Directed by Jim Helsinger, producing artistic director, Orlando Shakespeare Festival
