Shakespeare On The Common @ Boston Common

“Much Ado About Nothing”

We are thrilled to announce that our summer 2022 production of Free Shakespeare on the Common will be Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian!

Much Ado is a wonderful play, joyful, funny and accessible to all audiences. But it also deals with larger issues involved in navigating relationships, which makes the play very relevant to contemporary audiences” said CSC’s Founding Artistic Director Steve Maler. “We are thrilled to welcome director Megan Sandberg-Zakian, an accomplished artist who will be bringing her unique style and vision to the play.”

“I’m delighted that Commonwealth Shakespeare will continue the beloved tradition of Shakespeare on the Common for a 26th season!” remarked Boston Mayor Michelle Wu. “We’re lucky to have an active, vibrant arts community in our City, and organizations like CSC that help break barriers and expand access to live theater. I look forward to attending this summer’s production, and I encourage all of Boston to support and enjoy our amazing theater scene.”
