Shakespeare in Detroit will be performing Much Ado Para Nara at Detroit's Clark Park and Campus Martius Park Aug. 23-26.
An adaption of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, the show will perform at Clark Park on Thursday, Aug. 23 at 6:30, followed by shows at Campus Martius on Friday, Aug. 24 - Sunday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m.
“We are so excited to open our summer season in Southwest Detroit in Clark Park, which inspired the adaptation by Bernardo Mazón, and to close our season in the bustling, cosmopolitan neighborhood of Campus Martius Park,” says SiD Founder, Sam White. “We’re so grateful to the City of Detroit and the Downtown Detroit Partnership for saving our show and making sure that it was accessible and available for residents of Detroit from a city neighborhood to the busy blocks of downtown.”
White, who was born and raised in Detroit, wants to share the theatre with those who need it most.
“Detroit made me the artist that I am, and I tell everyone that. I love this city, and I love that SiD is inclusive, that the public show is free and accessible to everyone, and that the people in the company reflect the community the theatre serves,” says Tuttle.”I'm so excited to be directing Much Ado Para Nada, because we're telling Shakespeare's timeless story in a new and innovative way, working with artists here and from across the country, while putting some focus on the community of Southwest Detroit.”
