There are two productions of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” on in London at the moment which must be something of a rarety in itself.  One at the Wyndhams has two celebrity actors in the roles of Beatrice and Benedict (Catherine Tate and David Tennant respectively). I have not seen that production, but having today been to see the Globe’s production, all I can say is that Tate and Tennant have to be exceptionally good to out-perform the Globe’s Beatrice and Benedict: Eve Best and Charles EdwardsEve Best (who played Wallis Simpson in “The King’s Speech“) is a particularly fine Beatrice.  Well worth a visit.
