Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare’s comedy of well-matched but mouthy lovers gets the Jazz Age treatment from Big Idea, and it benefits greatly from an incredible Benedick (Kirk Blackinton), who is more than matched by an equally outstanding Beatrice (Liz Tachella-Bowman). F, Sa 8pm; Su 2:30pm. Through 12/4. $12-$15. Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Boulevard; (916) 960-3036; www.bigideatheatre.com.
