Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare
My rating: 3 out of 5 stars

This late 16th-century romantic comedy is high on romance and alright in comedy. Benedick and Beatrice are the liveliest couple in a Shakespeare play since Petruchio and Katharina, and might dare I say are greater than the Shrew couple in wittiness and disdain. The various situations that turnout to be “nothing” but smoke screen to cause either love or heartache to the characters vary in quality from well-done in the other characters tricking Benedick and Beatrice into love to so-so in Don John’s attempts to cause mischief. After reading it, I’m interested in seeing it on stage or a film/tv adaptation to see the interaction between B & B.
