On Saturday night, thanks to the immeasurable kindnesses of some long-time Bardfilm devotees, I was able to see the Much Ado About Nothing currently in production at the Guthrie Theatre.
Since the show was in previews, this is not a review. Let it serve, rather, as a notice that the play is on and that you should all go see it.
When I return to the theatre in late October, I'll post a review!

Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).
Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:

The very instant that I saw you did / My heart fly to your service; there resides, / To make me slave to it; and, for your sake, / Am I this patient [b]log-man.
