One of our favorite Shakespearean comedies, Much Ado About Nothing has made a huge impact on literature and pop culture!
EPISODE NOTES: Much Ado's beloved bickering couple, Beatrice and Benedick, have inspired dozens of other hate-to-love romances in fiction, from Pride & Prejudice, to Star Wars, to some of the biggest sitcoms and romantic comedies.
Our discussion also meanders around our favorite film and stage productions of the play, our thoughts on the play's themes of gender roles and mistaken identities, and that one Shakespeare conspiracy theory that won't seem to go away. It's a fun time.
Don't forget, our Cinderella Livestream is August 8th on our YouTube channel! Check our socials for deets.
