Delightful, Great acting, Masterful, Hilarious, Must see

See it if You love Shakespeare! Even if you have seen Much Ado many times before, this production is fresh, giving a new treatment to old themes.

Don't see it if You want to bring very young children. But older children 10 years and up will enjoy this production.

Theater In The Now
November 4th, 2015

"When it came to the comedy, Benson’s players didn’t quite earn many laughs. With some awkward physical comedy thrown into the mix in hopes to bring the funny, 'Much Ado About Nothing' was sadly anything but. And much of that is due to the way the company approached the script."

Times Square Chronicles
October 28th, 2015

"Though adapting Shakespeare into superficial themes, such as Vietnam War-inspired 'flavors' should never be done, because it is rarely done well, Lynnea Benson directed as well as possible under such artificial circumstances...Frog and Peach Theater Company’s rendition of 'Much Ado About Nothing' packs a punch...The choice to place 'Much Ado' into this time period did not help the actors."
