I especially liked the actress who played Beatrice. But there were several pauses in the dialog that seemed like the actors were trying to remember their lines. On balance, though, it was enjoyable.

Description

War ends and the confirmed bachelor Benedick returns with his regiment to civilian life, where he and a brilliant young woman named Beatrice must now declare war upon each other — and their true emotions.

By William Shakespeare
