This romantic comedy offers up passion steeped in deception and spiced with satire. Beatrice and Benedick are one of the wittiest, most irresistible duos known to the stage. Adorned with wordplay as sharp and sparkling as fine cut glass, Shakespeare’s courtship of two couples cuts away the romantic make-believe that shrouds true love. Lies, spies, a masked ball and “merry wars” make this a hilarious romp. Tony Award-nominated Mark Lamos directs this co-production with Hartford Stage.
