Much Ado About Nothing

Your mom is much ado about nothing.

Using a classic text, Wide Eyed brought a prescient and honest take on Shakespeare's text by setting it amongst the hipster den of Williamsburg. Set entirely in a coffee shop we see the story and characters clearly through our own contemporary experience as young upstarts in New York City.
