Much ado

Tonight is the last chance to see the SJC production of Much Ado About Nothing. It is certainly a different look at a Shakespeare play--the text of the play says it is set in Italy but the costuming and set say it is Western U.S.
It took me a while to get the flow of the language--the English of today is different from the English of Shakespeare's day. (It is not just language that has changed--the play shows that social attitudes have changed even more than language.)

Update: The next SJC play will be Tennessee Williams The Glass Menagerie on Jan 31 and Feb 1-2. The spring musical will be on April 11, 12, 13. For a list of all the music programs, see here.
