17a7/1248120330-shake.jpgThe production of Much Ado About Nothing opening at the Bartlett Performing Arts Center this weekend features original music by 60's inspired art rocker Bennett Foster of The Barbaras. Director Irene Crist, who set Shakespeare's classic battle of the sexes in the 1960's, is Foster's Mom.

Here's Foster performing a sweet, lo-fi Barbaras-style take on "Sigh No More Ladies." The song will be performed live by actor/musician Michael Towle.
