Joss Whedon brings an arthouse aesthetic and incredible ensemble cast to this updating of Shakespeare's sharp-tongued comedy. After a successful campaign against his rebellious brother, Don John (Sean Maher), Don Pedro (Reed Diamond) visits the governor of Messina. With him are Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz). While there, Claudio falls for the governor's daughter, Hero (Jillian Morgese), while Benedick engages in a war of words with Beatrice (Amy Acker), the governor's niece. While Don Pedro tries to trick Benedick and Beatrice into falling in love, Don John tries to tear Claudio and Hero apart. PG-13 / 109 min.
Presented with the Illinois Shakespeare Festival as part of their 40th Anniversay Season programming. For more information please visit: http://illinoisshakes.com/
