Dave Tennant and Catherine Tate in ‘Much Ado About Nothing’

This evening we saw an hysterical production of Much Ado About Nothing at Wyndhams Theatre.

David Tennant (Benedick) and Catherine Tate (Beatrice)are masters of comedy in this production.

This take on the play is set in the 1980s. The set and costumes have a little bit of a Mama Mia! feel, and a pinch of beach music shows up.

I took my 9-year-old and 11-year-old, so I was a little concerned about some of the more sexually provocative moments in the play — yet those moments were still pretty much in the PG13 range. My wife pointed out my daughters had already gotten the basic idea from the film version starring Denzel Washington and Emma Thompson.

That’s not to knock this production, not at all. Tennant and Tate were very funny, and the play was oustanding.
