Spending the afternoon at the Globe Theatre watching Much Ado about Nothing was the most entertaining way to finish the week. From the high-quality of acting to the general ambiance of the theatre- the performance exceeded all of our expectations and truly allowed us to dive into the world Shakespeare created. Not only was this an amusing production; it built upon our previous study of the text in English lessons. Seeing it acted out live gave us the opportunity to understand the feelings and thoughts of the characters in a way we couldn’t interpret before. Furthermore, in this adaptation there was a refreshing take on societal gender roles, as they had swapped some of the older characters (Leonato and Antonio) for a female equivalent. This classic comedy at the Globe Theatre is a phenomenal trip to go on and truly enhanced your enjoyment of Shakespearean literature.
