Much Ado About NothingOne of the most exciting prospects on the London stage this autumn is the combination of 'Jerusalem' actor Mark Rylance, former artistic director of Shakespeare's Globe, with actors Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones (the voice of 'Darth Vader') in The Old Vic's staging of Shakespeare's comedy Much Ado About Nothing. Last seen in the West End together in 2011, in Driving Miss Daisy at Wyndham's Theatre, the two lead actors - who, at 76 and 81, are twice the age of actors who traditionally play the lead roles - star as reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick in this A-list production. Tickets are likely to see out fast so book tickets now for Much Ado About Nothing at the Old Vic Theatre, London.

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
