As You Like It
by City Theatre Company
Feb. 17 - Feb. 20 (2018)
“All the world’s a stage!” proclaims William Shakespeare in his most famous romantic comedy. Exiled under threat of death, the irresistible heroine Rosalind, escapes into the wild and unpredictable Forest of Arden. Disguised as a boy, she creates a world of her own, reveling in her newfound independence. But her chance encounters with the love-struck Orlando - and all the merry woods dwelling misfits - complicate this new life. In the enchanting thickets of the forest, will true love find its way? Can one desire too much of a good thing? Do stories
have more than “happy endings?” With music, dance, and glorious battles, gender roles, nature, and politics all become a muddle in this wondrous comedy that celebrates redemption, family, and just how bewildering, yet utterly pleasurable, life can be.
Directed by guest director Levi Gore.
