This Shakespeare comedy, "Much Ado About Nothing" is about two couples who's love stories are intertwined from the very beginning of the play. One story follows the formal, romantic relationship between two people. In order for these two people to wind up together it will take the involvement of their friends in the proposal. The second, follows the story of a more sarcastic couple who pretends that they do not want anything to do with one another for the majority of the show. They even go to the extent of saying that they never want to be married, until their friends help them to realize that they secretly have a love for each other. In the end, will this wind up as a traditional Shakespeare show with love and death, or just love?
