Okay all you DT Fanatics! It’s time to get your Shakespeare on. Come join us for a fun, laugh out loud experience with a group watch of Much Ado About Nothing.

David Tennant and Catherine Tate star as reluctant lovers Benedick and Beatrice in Shakespeare’s timeless comedy Much Ado About Nothing.

Synopsis: Two young lovers, Claudio and Hero, are to be married imminently but the devious scheming of a resentful Prince looks set to thwart the nuptials. Meanwhile, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick whose endless witty sparring threatens to keep them apart forever.

Directed by Josie Rourke, Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s great plays and reminds us all of the failings and triumphs of the human condition in our never ending search for perfect love.

Runtime: 2 hours, 40 minutes        

This group watch is scheduled for Saturday, April 8, at 6:00pm Central.

If you are interested in participating, subscribe to the viewing by sending an ask or an IM to @dwgroupwatch or to me, @buffyann23 who will be hosting the viewing on Rabbit. I’ll send you the link to the viewing via IM approximately 30 minutes before showtime. Please make sure that if you subscribe, you are able to receive messages through IM.

Happy Birthday Denzel Washington | December 28th, 1954

It’s simple: You get a part. You play a part. You play it well. You do your work and you go home. And what is wonderful about movies is that once they’re done, they belong to the people. Once you make it, it’s what they see. That’s where my head is at.
