Is Much Ado About Nothing a comedy not always funny, a tragedy with a happy ending, a thriller, or a dance theatre even? The answer is yes to all these questions – MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING defies categorisation but at the same time it reveals Shakespeare’s genius. Shakespeare knew that profoundest truths are often revealed through laughter whereas sorrow is not so unique. MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is part of a long tradition of dark English humour that starts with Chaucer and continues to this day - Dickens, Wilde, Charlie Chaplin and Beckett all contributed to the genre. Beckett’s famous line: “Fail, try again, fail better” is clearly related to the glorious title of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.
