    Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

    Much Ado About Nothing played at The Globe from 21st May 2011 to the 1st October 2011.

    Claudio is deeply in love with Hero and she with him; they are devoted to each other and preparing to marry. Claudio’s best friend Benedick is in love with the witty and forceful Beatrice but he cannot admit it to himself or any of his friends. It is only after some playful scheming that the pair are finally bought together.

    Much Ado About Nothing

    Ms. Best’s director, Jeremy Herrin, has built his career very adroitly on new plays and comes at “Much Ado” as if it were one, mining the amorous give-and-take at its center with uncommon ease Matt Wolf
