‘Much Ado’ - Oct. 29 screening canceled
Rockland — Shakespeare’s Globe is bringing three of its theater productions to cinemas in the United States including the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., this fall. Next up is “Much Ado About Nothing” Monday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 1 p.m. The Monday night screening has been canceled due to the incoming inclement weather; a decision has yet to be made about the Tuesday show.
Originally staged and filmed at Shakespeare’s Globe in 2011, the play will be shown in its entirety, a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the charm of London’s world famous Globe Theatre and its critically acclaimed performances.
Shakespeare’s wittiest of comedies, “Much Ado About Nothing,” pairs Olivier Award-winning actress Eve Best (“The King’s Speech,” “Nurse Jackie”) and Charles Edwards (“Downton Abbey”) as the sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick and also features Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”) as Leonato. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, this fearless display of Shakespeare’s wit and wisdom, in which words become weapons, comes to sparkling life.
Closing the Globe season will be “Doctor Faustus” Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 1 and 7 p.m. Globe on Screen tickets are $15, $10 for students; contact the Strand for group ticket pricing.
