In The Mood
Shakepeare In The Cannery
July 13th – August 7th, 2018
The musical adaptation of
Much Ado About Nothing
Produced by Shakespeare In The Cannery
Directed by David Lear
For our fourth season, Shakespeare In The Cannery is proud to present In The Mood, a sparkling musical version of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. While using Shakespeare’s original words and story, we’ve placed the action in 1945 Italy, just as World War II has ended. The songs and dances of the swing era reflect that heady, celebratory time when all of worn-torn Europe rejoiced at the coming of peace.
Much Ado is the most socially and psychologically realistic of Shakespeare’s comedies, contrasting lighthearted wit with malice and pathos.
