arts-much-adoThe Old Globe Theatre

The 2011 Shakespeare Festival returns this season beginning the Old Globe’s 76th year as San Diego’s premier theatrical institution. One of the most popular and charming of Shakespeare’s comedies, Much Ado About Nothing features Benedick, an arrogant and confirmed bachelor, and Beatrice, his favorite sparring partner. While Beatrice and Benedick hide their infatuation beneath witty barbs, young love blossoms as Hero and Claudio race to the altar. When the wicked Don John conspires to break up the wedding, will false accusations and misunderstandings prevent the young couple’s happy ending? Witty wordplay, passionate poetry and clever plots twists make this the perfect romantic evening under the stars
