Brilliant, fresh, beautiful take on a classic!

By princess1575
As soon as I heard about this production, I have been impatiently awaiting its release. That kind of buildup could set unrealistically high expectations, but Joss brilliantly adapted Shakespeare's...

Much Ado About Awesome!

What a fantastic job by one & all. I ususally hate when Shakepeare is sent in a different era than intended, but it is done with such aplomb that it actuallt enhances the experience. Plus, it should...

Much Ado About Nothing - SEE IT!
