‘Much Ado’ about Lyle

Lovett wrote new song just for show

Having written a song just for “Much Ado About Nothing” at the Kirk Douglas Theater, Lyle Lovett proved that even Shakespeare has room for improvement. “I didn’t actually finish until I started the rehearsal process and could see it in action,” said Lovett at Sunday’s opening night reception in Culver City. Lovett also performed a few of his older songs in the play, produced by the Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles.

The show’s leading lady approved of Lovett’s contributions. “On one hand, it was someone I knew,” said Helen Hunt, who’s worked with the singer-songwriter before. “On the other hand, it was like there was a rock star on stage.”
