As You Like It

Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Jeffrey Fracé

Funny, melancholy, and anything but sentimental, As You Like It is often unfairly branded as a silly pastoral romp. Director Jeffrey Fracé puts that notion soundly to rest, reimagining Shakespeare’s tale of exile and transformation for 1950s America (with a Sci-Fi B-movie twist). Layered with original, Americana tunes, this is a pot-stirring rendition of the classic story of Rosalind and Celia, two cousins who run off to the forest to escape convention. Fun, frisky, and sometimes over-the-top, the show reminds us that life is short, so we’d better love one another as best we can, as long as we can.
