Much Ado About Nothing


“Great show. Loved the choices in the period. Really enjoyed the truthful storytelling within the staging and the wonderful acting. As a theatre teacher at an all girls high school I was inspired. Thank you.” – Audience Member

An all-female production of Much Ado About Nothing kicks off Looking for Lilith’s 2012-2013 season. Switching the Shakespearean convention of one gender casting, LFL has cast only women in this perennial comedy favorite. Says Artistic Director Shannon Woolley Allison, “since we performed an evening of scenes of Shakespeare’s women characters, we’ve been eager to undertake a full production and we’re excited to explore the conventions of what it is to be men and women according to ‘society’ in this smart comedy”.
