Subject:    Much ado about _Much Ado_

Folks, I'm something of a traditionalist and don't normally go a bundle 
for modernist "takes" on Shakespearean plays, but if you live in the 'DC 
metropolitan area, run, don't walk, to the Folger's production of _Much 
Ado_! All I will tell you is that it's set in the Bahamas, and it's as 
fresh and clean as the Caribbean itself, whilst still true to 
Shakespeare in every respect. Definitely one of the happiest experiences 
I've had in too long a time. I'd gladly go see it again!
