Shakespeare's Globe Theatre presents Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London brings a touring production of Much Ado About Nothing to The Huntington for two evening performances on November 9 and 10.
Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio, and nothing seems capable of keeping them apart. Claudio's friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love by vowing to kill his best friend. Set in the Sicilian town of Messina, the play is one of the Bard's liveliest and best-loved comedies. This production, directed by Max Webster with set design by James Cotterill, places the action in the mid-20th century. Music is composed by John Barber.
This performance will take place in Rothenberg Hall at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.
Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. The seating for this event is open and on a first come basis. The program begins at 7 p.m. and will end approximately at 9:30 p.m.

ABOUT SHAKESPEARE'S GLOBE: Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare's Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare's work and the playhouse for which he wrote, through the connected means of performance and education.
Together, the Globe Theatre, Globe Exhibition & Tour and Globe Education seek to further the experience and international understanding of Shakespeare in performance.
SHAKESPEARE AT THE HUNTINGTON: One of the Library's most prized works is this first folio edition of William Shakespeare's collected plays, published in 1623, seven years after his death. The First Folio contains thirty-six plays, eighteen of them printed for the first time. This "authorized version," prepared by his friends and colleagues from "true originall copies," is the prime source of our knowledge of Shakespeare's texts.
