Joyce Kulhawik “I LOVED Boston Theater Company’s update of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, I’ve seen it dozens of times, and much more luxuriously ensconced, but the play’s the thing and all the player’s in it are what ultimately carry the day; my day was carried to almost giddy heights within a few moments of this 90 minute stripped down production which subsumes 24 characters into 8, and is played in a modest space on the second floor of the Calderwood Pavilion…the cast is fresh and funny, not only in full possession of their iambic pentameter, but also their iPhones so as to text the Bard’s text for a contemporary twist on miscommunication. Marge Dunn and Jeff Church Jr. especially have the right snap, crackle, pop as the dueling lovers B & B. Their sizzling exchanges immediately suggest the fiery passion they so desperately fight to tamp down, while we and most of the characters can’t wait for it to explode. The production does as much justice to the heartbreak beneath the slapstick as it does to the romance, and is supported throughout by a cool, original sound design, and beautiful melodies/voices for Shakespeare’s songs.”
