Much Ado About Nothing to star Vanessa Redgrave

Date Posted: 31/07/2013

Mark Rylance will direct James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave in Shakespeare’s comedy Much Ado About Nothing at the Old Vic in London, from 19th September to 23rd November.

James Earl Jones (who played the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars) and Vanessa Redgrave recently starred in Alfred Uhry’s Driving Miss Daisy both in the West End and on Broadway.

Much Ado About Nothing– a synopsis

While young lovers Claudio and Hero threaten to have their imminent nuptials thwarted by the resentful scheming of a Prince, marriage seems inconceivable for reluctant lovers Beatrice (Vanessa Redgrave) and Benedick (James Earl Jones). Redgrave and Earl Jones take on these roles for the first time.
