James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave play warring lovers Benedick and Beatrice in Shakespeare's timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Mark Rylance. Jones and Redgrave are two of the world's foremost stage actors. After their hit Broadway coupling in Driving Miss Daisy, they've reunited in an innovative production of Shakespeare's sparkling, evergreen comedy.

What's the show about?
While Claudio and Hero have their forthcoming nuptials threatened by the resentful scheming of a Prince, marriage seems out of the question for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick in Shakespeare's witty comedy about the never-ending search for perfect love.
Why should I see it?
Aside from the sheer magnitude of talent on display, Rylance's production takes a bold step in casting the distinctly post-teenage Redgrave and Jones in the traditionally younger roles of Beatrice and Benedick. Updated to the 1940s, this classic tale of young love's dream becomes instead a reflection on autumn-years romance, invested with all the comic flair and emotional truthfulness you'd expect from its A-list leads.
