Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Dates: May 29, 2015 – June 7, 2015

One of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing deals with the quintessential themes of human existence, displaying the absurd lengths we travel in the pursuit of love and honor. The original play takes place in Messina, Italy, but in keeping with our New York roots, we appropriately supplanted the city for a bar in TriBeCa, a neighborhood known as much for its thriving nightlife as for its stroller congested sidewalks. During intermission, audience members had the opportunity to access the bar, and walk about the set, providing an interactive experience that is a defining element of Offline Productions.

As is the case with all of Offline Production’s theatrical performances, Much Ado About Nothing pulled together some of NYC’s finest actors, comedians, improvisors, and musical performers, creating an electrifying atmosphere of comedic, New York City theater at its best.

This was Offline Productions’ first off-Broadway performance, and all profits derived from ticket sales went to Art for Progress’ Arts Education Program, which helps empower NYC’s young artists with the professional tools they need in order to be competitive in today’s markets.
