With this opening salvo, Beatrice and Benedick reignite their merry war in William Shakespeare's wittiest play. Located in Messina, Sicily, which seems to produce only golden weather, this sparkling comedy follows these droll sophisticates as they are felled by Cupid's arrow, resulting in a joyous journey of love and laughter.
