Chicago Reader- Somewhat Recommended

"...These four are surrounded by a fine ensemble, most of whom do their best to support the leads. Bret Tuomi doesn't quite hit all the right comic notes as the foolish Constable Dogberry, though he finds enough to earn some laughs. But with lovers who don't even seem to like each other in the leads, this romance hits the rocks pretty early, and founders for the rest of the evening."

"...Oak Park's Much Ado, despite the cicadas and other occasional issues with lighting and sound, is a very enjoyable evening under the August stars. Bring a blanket, a picnic, and maybe a bottle of wine; you'll have a great time."

"...“Thy eternal summer shall not fade,” Shakespeare once said. But neither do the stars. Behind a wispy curtain of clouds, the stars up high shone brightly upon the stars on stage throughout opening night’s performance of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” This production in modern dress is directed by Melanie Keller and culminates the 45th year of classical outdoor theater at Austin Gardens under the auspices of the Oak Park Festival Theatre and the Park District of Oak Park."
