Much Ado About Nothing

directed by Richard Mazda

Influenced by the hierarchies that one finds among the dispossessed, homeless and street dwellers, Richard Mazda's "Much Ado" takes us to a street strewn with trash, where the gentle Leonato's cardboard dwelling is the best on the street, where everyday objects are casually thrown away. Echoes of the absurdist "Waiting for Godot" lead the audience to a pinpoint sharp and reverent language; the comedy, pathos, and humor of the piece are ably assisted by "clown techniques," which draw out Shakespeare's merry war between Benedick and Beatrice. In this Trash Period "Much Ado," the comedy duo of Dogberry and Verges somehow manage to apprehend the conspirators and assist the not-so-smooth passage of true love between our lovers, Hero and Claudio and B and B. Don John and henchmen Conrade and Borachio are thwarted by the most inept but much beloved characters of Dogberry, Verges and the Watch.
