Much Ado About Who

Doctor Who’s David Tennant and Catherine Tate will perform Much Ado About Nothing in London’s West End this summer and tickets are going fast. BBC reports:

The stars will portray reluctant lovers and constant sparring partners Beatrice and Benedick in the Bard’s comedy.

It will be Tate and Tennant’s first appearance together since starring in BBC One’s Doctor Who. The play, directed by Josie Rourke, will open at Wyndham’s Theatre on 1 June and run until 3 September.

The production was announced on Friday. Colin Harris, past Worldcon chair, lives in London and hurried to snap up some tickets. He reports that nearly all the good seats were gone in the first 48 hours on sale. He predicts the whole run will have booked up in another week.
