This was the ninth Much Ado I’ve seen, and, typical of all Shakespeare’s plays, I picked up lines and moments I’d never caught before. But even if I could attend all 35 performances of this production’s Actors’ Renaissance Season run (through April 8), I would surely laugh anew each time, thanks to Shakespeare, thanks to the Blackfriars Playhouse playing conditions, and thanks most of all to the company’s 12 actors who also serve as the production’s 12 directors.
Honestly, if I were living within 30 miles of Staunton I would see as many performances of this production as I could, for in the hands and mouths of this exemplary company working in the Blackfriars environs, Much Ado About Nothing becomes a living thing, a new experience with each outing.
For best seats, order tickets for Much Ado about Nothing today.
