Much Ado About Nothing – Toronto Fringe 2013 Press Release

From press release:

Shakespeare BASH’d prepares for victory at the Victory Café with Much Ado About Nothing

The creative team that brought you the 2012 Best of Fringe Winner The Taming of the Shrew is at it again, bringing Shakespeare’s uproarious, clever, and at times dark comedy Much Ado About Nothing to the Victory Café! The show centres on a battle of wits between Benedick (James Wallis) and Beatrice (Amelia Sargisson). Hilarity ensues as the couple succumbs to the gossip, rumors and “notings” of their families.

Director Eric Double is returning to control the mayhem yet again, and is excited to truly test the limits of the Victory Café. “Last year, we were able to create a really unique experience for Fringe audiences, and this year, we’re ready to take it to the next level. Much Ado About Nothing has a raucous energy that lends itself perfectly to the atmosphere we’re going to create at the Victory Café. We’re going to transform the space into a post‐war victory celebration, and invite Fringe patrons to join in the revelry”. “Our company is about creating unique moments for the audience to discover the beauty of Shakespeare in unconventional spaces” adds BASH’d Artistic Director James Wallis. “We learned a lot last year, and we’re excited to deliver something fresh, new, exciting and immersive at the 2013 Toronto Fringe. We’re having a victory party at the Victory, and the audience is the guest of honour”.
