In Much Ado, the clarity of radio allows the wonderful verbal sparring between Beatrice and Benedick to sparkle as high comedy and melodrama mix magically in a combination of prose and verse.
Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

I would love to, but the play gets modified by the performers.
The performance cuts out significant portions of the play. There are also several places where an actor changes a line or word order. It really takes away from the play. Also, Don John speaks too, too softly to even be heard. What's the point?
This is a fun production of "Much Ado", with some lively and enjoyably performances, especially from Tennant and Spiro as Beatrice and Benedick. The text is cut a bit, but not to an extent that it will disturb non-purists.
Chopped, and Cut, and re-structured.
If the writers words have been altered, please list as abridged.
A classic by a classic organization. The production made the text come alive. I will glad to purchase the rest of the Bard's collection in audio book.
A fantastic version of one of the comedies. A brillisnt tale of love, confusion & betrayal. The cast is brilliant, & I would recommend this version to any Shakespeare fan or English literature student.
