Beatrice and Benedick are fiercely independent and stubborn young bachelors who swear they will remain single forever… but not if their friends and the 1980’s Queen of Pop have anything to do with it.  Join us for Much Ado About Madonna, Satire V’s fifth annual jukebox musical and a comedic successor to the tragedy that was last year’s performance of Romeo and Juliet & Bennie and the Jets. Madonna’s iconic dance anthems bring the Bard’s wittiest banter about love, loyalty, and deception to life. With its couples, cuckolds, masquerades, and material girls, this borderline retelling of Shakespeare’s classic rom-com will touch you like it’s the very first time.
