“Much Ado About Nothing”: Ann Arbor Civic Theatre.:
Nov. 4–6 & 11–13. David Widmayer directs local actors in Shakespeare’s high-spirited, sharp-tongued comedy about 2 sets of young lovers. One couple, both disdainful of love, are tricked into acknowledging each other, while the other couple’s love is nearly ruined by a deception that, abetted by the paranoia of returning military heroes, leads to trumped-up charges of infidelity. For this production, AACT incorporates contemporary music and themes and turns the play’s central characters into musicians and poets. 8 p.m. (Fri. & Sat.), & 2 p.m. (Sun.), Civic Theatre, 322 W. Ann. Tickets $15 (students, $10) in advance at a2ct.org & by phone and at the door. firstname.lastname@example.org, 971-2228., . . . . . .
