Publisher's Summary

In Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare created one of the greatest verbal sparring matches in all of literature, echoes of which can be heard in the sophisticated dialogue of such late masters as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, and Noel Coward. Throughout the play, the proud would-be lovers, Beatrice and Benedick, circle each other warily, and as they draw closer and closer to their inevitable union, their scathing witticisms and sly innuendoes reach a feverish intensity that befits the passionate longing they both vainly seek to deny. Much Ado About Nothing is at once a sobering examination of dishonesty and deception, and a boisterous celebration of that overwhelming natural phenomenon we call love.

Good performance, but hard to hear

It is nice that there is background noise to the seems however it does become difficult to hear at times. Overall the characters were great and enthusiastic.
