Much Ado About Nothing Opens at A Noise Within
A Noise Within presents William Shakespeare's classic comedy Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Michael Murray, opening tonight and running through Friday, May 21, 2010. “Much Ado About Nothing is the epitome of a play about the battle of the sexes," says Murray. "But with all the surface comedy, it’s really about two lonely people who really want to be together. It's a sexy play in which there’s a sense that anything can happen.” Tickets and information: call 818-240-0910 x1 or online.
