Much Ado: Interactive Theater Performance in Downtown Tampa

 An interactive dance/theatre performance, cinematic installation, live music, and curated art exhibition all based on William Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing.’

What are you doing Valentine’s Day Weekend? Take your honeys or grab your friends because time is ticking and the last week before the performance, Much Ado, will be at your seats!

Creative illustrator Laura Spencer teams up with the notorious Avant-Guardian performers. Through their dedication and hard work these artists have put together for Tampa’s entertainment, an immersive performance and exhibition held at our very own, Rialto Theatre.

Much Ado is a “rich, sophisticated and sensory-indulgent experience” from what is based off of William’s Shakespeare’s comedy, Much Ado About Nothing.

This contemporary spin off of Shakespeare’s performance is not one to turn a cheek to.

Not only will Avant-Gaurdian pull your romantic strings through scandals, lust, and the experience of love-at-first-sight with more than 50 of their own performers, 18 visual artists will also be featured throughout the Rialto Theatre.

If you haven’t gotten your tickets don’t hesitate to purchase them while they’re still available. The performance is on February 13th and 14th at 8PM at the historic Rialto Theatre in Downtown Tampa.

Prepare to not only watch but also engage as one of Claudio and Hero’s wedding guests and wander through their infamous love story. Will you lean towards the romanticism of it all or find yourself scrunching your forehead in dismay?

Kaileen Schleith – Chad Mize – Scott Sherman – Madison Zalopany – Gordon Bonnet – Joseph Burnsed

John Suarez – Boo Ehrsam – Samantha Mancino – Josh Fuller – Zulu Painter – Aaron Aitchison – Carrie Jadus

Mitchell James Goodrich – Thomas Ris – Rion Sabean – Laura Spencer – John Taormina

Live music will be featured by Coco and Homo and keep an eye out for a special guest appearance by Una Voce from The Florida Men’s Chorale.

‘No, and if he were I would burn my library.”
