Kudos to Jason Morehead over at Opus for putting together a review roundup for Joss Whedon’s previously under-the-radar Shakespeare adaptation. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while, but now I’m genuinely excited. I hadn’t previously checked out who was in it, and I have to say that the primary appeal for me is to see that cast to that play. I’m particularly keen to see Alexis Denisoff and Amy Acker as Benedick and Beatrice, respectively. The frisson, for Whedon fans, is that Denisoff and Acker played the star-crossed Wesley and Fred on Angel. As much as Whedon loves screwing over fan-fave characters, it’s kind of sweet for him to cast the performers for one of his most infamous doomed duos as a pair for whom things pretty much work out — with plenty of barbs, bumps, bruises, and murder requests along the way, natch.☕
