    I see what she did here by playing Shakespeare in the park because now she's showing a whole bunch of people that she has a wider range of acting talent and she's willing to show it off for free so after the whole Shakespeare in the park thing is over she can get an even bigger movie deal plus she can be the main character that's smart 💯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾

    Wait!! She’s playing Beatrice???? Much Ado About Nothing is my favorite Shakespeare play and Beatrice is so clever and independent and funny and just one of the best Shakespeare female characters. I’m so excited for her!!!
