This musical is currently in production and scheduled to be released Summer 2018.
Set in 1945, as soldiers return from the war in the Pacific, this contemporary setting of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing both does justice to the author’s sharp wit and spins the perennial classic in a fitting way. In the style of a 1940’s musical, this version of Much Ado About Nothing was a run-away hit for the Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s 2012 season. Shakepeare’s timeless humor combined with these delightful new songs by two of Nashville’s premiere musical theater songwriters make this a slam-dunk audience pleaser.
