Much Ado About Nothing


Adapted and directed by Johnny Young and produced by Malini Singh McDonald, Executive Director at Black Henna Productions, Ltd., the company presents its 2010 NYC Parks Tour.

At Club Messina, the water is cool, the sun is hot, and the clientele (and staff) are off the wall!

Fresh from fending off a hostile takeover, Don Pedro has brought the top executives of AraGone, Claudio and Benedick, with him for some downtime at his flagship resort; but when his sister, Dona Joan decides to start trouble for everyone, lovers are crossed, friends are set against each other and chaos reigns!

It's up to Head Lifeguard Dogberry, and Francis, the beach bum to try and sort things out and bring a happy end to the vacation for Beatrice, Hero and the rest of the crew!
