Much Ado About Nothingdetail +

Riverside Theatre Complex map
Wed., Jan. 28, 2015, 7:30PM

Celebrating their triumphant return from war, a group of hardened soldiers' thoughts melt into those of love in this "merry war" between the sexes. A new sort of truth telling occurs; rather than attempting to destroy their enemies, the secrets revealed in this uproarious comedy will prove who our heroes' true friends are. Sharp-tongued and disillusioned Benedick and Beatrice must undeceive themselves to see each other clearly, while a series of mix-ups will challenge the young lovers Claudio and Hero to follow through with the marriage. Even Don John, the would-be lago, is rendered gentle by the soft power of Messina and its inhabitants. Through the play, these beloved characters must learn to forget their troubled past and remind themselves that "man is a giddy thing."

Thu., Jan. 22, 2015, 7:30PM

A Tony Award winning Broadway comedy. The Cleveland Grand Opera Company welcomes the greatest tenor of his generation, Tito Morelli, to appear for one night only. The star arrives late and accidentally consumes a double dose of tranquilizers – and passes out. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, the opera manager persuades his assistant, Max, to get into Morelli's costume and fool the audience into thinking he's the great man. Amazingly, Max is succeeding. But while Max is onstage, Morelli comes to, gets into a spare costume and heads for the stage.
