Sparks Are Flying With Beatrice and Benedick in Central Park

By NEIL GENZLINGER

There will be a juicy battle going on nightly at the Delacorte Theater
in Central Park, where "Much Ado About Nothing" is this year's
Shakespeare in the Park offering from the Public Theater. It's not the
insult-a-thon between Beatrice and Benedick, though that remains as
lively as when Shakespeare conceived it four centuries ago. The main
event here is the wonderful war between Kristen Johnston and Jimmy
Smits, who play those characters, as they vie for the title of crowd
favorite.
