"Much Ado About Women in All-Female Shakespeare Cast
LONDON (Reuters) - It wouldn't have happened in Shakespeare's day -- women on stage in his theater in one of his plays. Not only that, but women playing men!
But that has not deterred the all-female cast of the comedy 'Much Ado About Nothing,' being staged at London's Globe Theater, who work on the premise that women can portray men better than men can play women.
The play, part of the Star-Crossed Lovers season at the Globe -- a lovingly rebuilt replica standing 100 yards from the original site of Shakespeare's own theater destroyed by fire in 1613 -- runs to the end of June. "
