Tarragon Theatre presents Bollywood-inspired re-imagination of Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare.
Much Ado About Nothing plays as an all-out war of the sexes against the backdrop of a very Canadian clash of cultures. Classical text fuses with Bharatanatyam, Bollywood and Brampton in this larger-than-life spectacle. Moving from comedy to tragedy and back again with razor sharp wit, a familiar story takes on new meaning when set in our own backyard and promises to shed new light on love in our modern urban times.
Directed by Tarragon Artistic Director Richard Rose with consulting director Ravi Jain, Shakespeare’s clever comedy opens Wednesday, April 29 and runs to Sunday, May 31.
Where: Tarragon Theatre’s Mainspace, 30 Bridgman Avenue, Toronto, M5R 1X3
When: Tuesday-Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2:30pm and select Saturdays at 2:30pm: May 2, May 9, May 16.
