Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Due to Governor Cuomo’s COVID-19 Health & Safety protocol and, on the recommendation of the CDC limiting the size of gatherings, the remaining shows for Niagara University’s 2019-2020 Theatre season have been cancelled.

Laughter, lamentation, libel, lies and love. Yup, that’s Shakespeare…


“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.” Much Ado About Nothing delivers on the personal tightrope walk between the head and the heart. 


Beatrice and Benedick would rather exchange blistering insults than sweet nothings. However, the pugnacious pair is forced to forge a partnership in order to defend family and honor, and save the true love between Hero and Claudio after malicious rumors devastate the lovers’ wedding day. Will their sincere struggle to restore young love prompt unexpected changes in all four? Much Ado may be the Bard’s most sublime battle of wits and will.
