Shakespeare Uncovered | “Much Ado About Nothing” with Helen Hunt | Preview | PBS

Official Website: | #ShakespearePBS
Explore the history and themes in “Much Ado About Nothing” with host Helen Hunt.

“Much Ado About Nothing” is one of 13 plays that Shakespeare set in Italy, a country that was warm, sensuous and inviting for any 16th-century Englishmen writing about lovers. Claudio and Hero are the conventional lovers, too tongue-tied to speak to each other; Beatrice and Benedick are the skeptics, too busy insulting each other to realize how much they are in love. Hunt explores this exquisite comedy of comparison and contrast, as well as what the ultimate “ado” about “nothing” really means.

Premieres Friday, October 12 at 9 p.m. on PBS. Streams online and on PBS apps starting Saturday, October 13.
