In this exuberant revival of Shakespeare's beloved Much Ado About Nothing, EXPLiCIT transports you to Italy in July, 1944. Rome has just been liberated by the Allies and, for Sicily at least, the war is over and the populace begins rebuilding their lives.
This setting allows for a delightful romp in the park, as the players present a riotous, fun-filled evening punctuated by swing dancing and 1940s Big Band dance music.
The performance, presented outside on a beautiful stage behind the Caltech Alumni House, is directed by Mark Kozlowski, Caltech PhD student in Chemistry.
WHEN: August 5, 6, 7 and August 11, 12, 13 at 7:30pm (view calendar)
WHERE: The Caltech Alumni House, 345 S. Hill Ave, Pasadena
TICKETS: available at the door, $5 students, $10 general. For reservations email email@example.com
