17-Much Ado About Nothing

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING (1999) Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company makes the most of Shakespeare’s silly romantic comedy under Natsuko Ohama and Lisa Wolpe’s direction. Their take on the language is particularly lucid, so that not only do the actors understand and relish their lines, the audience does too…Will Beatrice and Benedick ever get together? The fun is in the journey, provided by a consistently vibrant and polished cast…That all the roles are played by women is merely momentarily disconcerting, and the ethnic variety only adds to the interest. What does it matter, after all, when they are all so good.
