Shakespeare Production at Metro Libraries


“Nothing” can sometimes be a slippery slope to disaster, and especially when “nothing” means gossip and slander, as it does in William Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy, “Much Ado About Nothing.”

The Metropolitan Library System and Reduxion Theatre present four free presentations of the play through April 21 at various MLS locations around Oklahoma County. 

“The play is about two sets of lovers,” said Dana Morrow, MLS Director of Outreach Services.  “One pair is very much in love, so much so in fact that they have a hard time articulating their passion.  The other two, the more famous ones, are Benedick and Beatrice, who constantly snipe at each other, cynically putting down the concepts of love and faithfulness.”  They indulge in a classic battle of wits.”

All performances are free and open to the public.  For more information, please call 606-3833.

“Much Ado About Nothing” is co-sponsored by Reduxion Theatre, Oklahoma Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts
