Much Ado About Nothing

If you can't make it to London, England to experience a Shakespeare production, the next best thing is to see a film version of one of their productions!
With many sad events in the recent past, it was wonderful to sit down and laugh!
Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is my absolute favorite play. I love the cleaver dialogue between Benedick and Beatrice. Many times when "have to" teach Romeo and Juliet, I dream of teaching Much Ado About Nothing. Benedick and Beatrice's has a lot more sense and spark than Romeo and Juliet's childlike dream about marriage and death.
I also loved seeing the Globe Theater audience, and how they were included in the  play I could hear them laugh, see them put on the rain ponchos (as it was raining during the production), and observe how the actors made direct eye contract with the audience members.
I think I will have to start planning a trip to the Globe Theater! So, if they are showing a film version close to you, go see it! You will  enjoy it!


  1. I think a trip to see Much Ado About Nothing would be spectacular! Maybe I'll search out a film version though.

  2. A trip to London would be so great, but I guess I'll have to take the virtual route. Thanks for the idea. it's been a very long time since I have read any Shakespeare or seen one of the plays.
