    Shakespeare RAW: Much Ado About Nothing

    May 11 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Location:
    • Blue Ribbon Hall

    Calendar: Events

    best place pabst milwaukee shakespeare raw much ado about nothing"Well, then, go you into hell?"

     

    No, but to the Best Place for May's performance of "Shakespeare Raw: Much Ado About Nothing"! Three shows in a row! (Hopefully.)

     

    "But I'm not familiar with the play" you say, well, here's the gist:

     

    Leonato, the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John. Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick and Claudio. While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato's daughter Hero, while Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice, the governor's niece. The budding love between Claudio and Hero prompts Don Pedro to arrange with Leonato for a marriage. And stop in for the rest.........

     

    Everyone following so far?

     

    Cost is $10 at the door or $5 if you're in "wedding wear". What is "wedding wear"? Well, like most of these deals, it's a pretty loose interpretation. Sure, if you've got a tux collecting dust or an old bridesmaid dress you don't hate, feel free to wear it; but maybe you have a tuxedo t-shirt or a cocktail dress you were wearing in Vegas when you had 5 long islands too many and met "this guy who is soooooo the one" and hit that drive-thru chapel. Basically, convince my door person that you'd wear it to a wedding and you get the $5. That's another $5 you can spend at the bar.

     

    "Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
    Men were deceivers ever,
    One foot in sea and one on shore,
    To one thing constant never"

    best place pabst milwaukee events shakespeare raw antony and cleopatra“I will praise any man that will praise me.”

     

    "But I'm not familiar with the play" you say, well, here's the gist: Mark Antony, one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire, spends his time in Egypt, living a life of decadence and conducting an affair with the country’s beautiful queen, Cleopatra. When a message arrives informing him that his wife, Fulvia, is dead and that Pompey is raising an army to rebel against the triumvirate, Antony decides to return to Rome. In Antony’s absence, Octavius Caesar and Lepidus, his fellow triumvirs, worry about Pompey’s increasing strength. Caesar condemns Antony for neglecting his duties as a statesman and military officer in order to live a decadent life by Cleopatra’s side.

     

    Then a lot more happens but that should be enough to get you started.

     

    As of the time of creating this event, Masks will be mandatory unless you are at your table. I am not interested in arguing about this, so don't bother. This is our effort to make the Great Ick more endemic than pan.

     

    Cost is $10 at the door or $5 if you're in a toga. SHAKESPEAREAN TOGA PARTY!!! This is $5 we're talking about here! That's another $5 you can spend at the bar. So be sure to stop on by and party all night because
