Packed with razor sharp humor and a colorful cast of characters, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is arguably Shakespeare's best comedy. And in the expert hands of Joss Whedon, this theatrical gem is polished until it sparkles with dazzling charm and radiant romance.

When the household of Leonato (Clark Gregg) is visited by the party of Don Pedro (Reed Diamond), mischief and drama quickly ensue. The young Claudio (Fran Kranz) falls head over heels for the beautiful Hero (Jillian Morgese), while her cousin Beatrice (Amy Acker) engages in a battle of wits with Benedick (Alexis Denisof). Playing matchmaker, Don Pedro launches a campaign to bring Beatrice and Benedick together, with hilarious results, but the malicious machinations of Don John (Sean Maher) threaten to ruin any hope of love or revelry.

Set in modern day, Whedon's adaptation bubbles with his signature wit, while the B&W film casts a classic glow on the production. Whether you're a diehard Shakespeare fan or not, you'll be captivated by this spirited, delightful romp. (Sarah Pitre)
