a comedy (1598?) by Shakespeare.
A big fuss over a trifle, as in Jerry had everyone running around looking for his gloves—much ado about nothing. Although this expression is best remembered as the title of Shakespeare’s comedy, the phrase much ado was already being used for a big commotion or trouble in the early 1500s.
