Much Ado About Nothing is my favorite Shakespeare play, hands down. The movie adaptation was even pretty good despite Keanu Reeves and Michael Keaton. I'd dare to say it's Shakespeare at his best, but that's only because I'm a sucker for the romantic stuff. "I will live in thy heart, die in thy lap and be buried in thy eye." Try that on your special someone and just see what happens. With a cast headed by the impossibly talented Raphael Parry, I expect great things. The show begins Wednesday at Samuell Grand Amphitheater, 6200 E. Grand Ave., and moves to Addison Circle Park, 15650 Addison Road, on October 18. Call 214-559-2778 or visit shakespearedallas.org.
