About Much Ado About Nothing | Globe

See Shakespeare's words come to life this summer as the beloved comedy Much Ado About Nothing takes the stage at the Globe Theatre in an exciting new production. Book Much Ado About Nothing tickets on TodayTix.

Much Ado About Nothing in London stars Ekow Quartey (Harry Potter, Breeders) and Amalia Vitale (Big Mood, Beyond Paradise) as the verbally sparring, eventual couple Benedick and Beatrice. The talented cast also includes Lydia Fleming (Mary & George) as Hero, Adam Wadsworth (My Phone Genie) as Claudio, Ryan Donaldson (Owners) as Don Pedro, and Robert Mountford (Burnt at the Stake) as Don Jon.

The play tells the story of Count Claudio falling in love with Hero, but that's not the only love story. Hero's cousin Beatrice and Claudio's friend Benedick, both determined to be single, are brought together through conspiring friends, family, and lots of humor. Shakespeare's timeless classic is still relevant today as it was hundreds of years ago, exploring themes of honour, reputation, deception, and love.

The 2023 film Anyone But You, starring Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell, is a more recent film adaptation.

What to watch for

  • Listen for the phrase, “Curiosity killed the cat,” which entered the English language because of Much Ado About Nothing.
  • Many think that Shakespeare drew inspiration for Much Ado About Nothing from Ludovico Ariosoto’s Italian epic poem, Orlando Furioso.
  • Billie Joe Armstrong, the lead singer of the band Green Day, scored the music for a rock opera version of Much Ado About Nothing called These Paper Bullets!
  • In Shakespeare's day, “noting” meant gossip or overhearing something, and the pronunciation was similar to “nothing.” The show's title is a play on words in multiple ways, including that “noting” brings Beatrice and Benedick to confess their love.
  • The title track of Mumford & Sons' 2009 album, Sigh No More, quotes Much Ado About Nothing.
