Much Ado About Nothing

As we all learned in English class, Shakespeare loved to party. And what better way to celebrate his 450th birthday this summer than with Nameless Theatre’s all singing, all dancing, blow out production of Much Ado About Nothing?

It’s Shakespeare’s best romantic comedy, and it’s as popular today as it ever was. Joss Whedon loved it enough to get his friends round to film it in his house (it was his first post-Avengers film project last year), and now we’re bringing it to Nagoya. With a twist.

This is Much Ado About Nothing set in the fashionable height of the roaring ‘20s. Gone are the Elizabethan frills and tights, and in are flapper dresses, dancing and wild jazz.

Staged with original musical compositions and singing by Prisca Molotsi, set and costume design by renowned UK designer Max Jones, and the talent of Nagoya’s thriving international theatre community, Much Ado is the beauty of Shakespeare wrapped in the glitz of high society.
