Much Ado About Nothing gets a release date
“Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate have set a June 7 opening for Much Ado About Nothing… The film will open that day in five markets and then broaden out on June 21”.
That’s my birthday! But it won’t be out here on 7 June :(
"There was only from Maurice Angel of Angel Costumes. I’d had three fittings of that very tight uniform - none of them fucking fit. None of them So I did the dress rehearsal of “Much Ado” in my street clothes while everybody else was in their fucking costumes. I apologized. I said I’m sorry the fucking thing isn’t ready. And then Peter Hall stepped from out front and said: “Chris, where’s your costume?”. I said: “Peter, I’m sorry. It’s just, to tell you the truth, it doesn’t fit and I’ve had three fittings.” And Angel was in the wings with it as I spoke. And he threw my costume onto the stage and said: “Make it yourself, you bloody colonial."
