As You Like It - Performance
All the world’s a stage… One of Shakespeare’s most frequently quoted passages from one of his most popular fairy tales—a world possible only on a stage. As You Like It is a metaphor of love; its power, madness, danger, humor, and reflection. The Acting Company, which brings this classic to life in modern-day form, has garnered critical acclaim on a national scale through 39 seasons of classic, contemporary, and new plays. About the play- On one level it is a diverting amusement. On a deeper level, it is a journey of discovery, in which the characters gain knowledge of themselves and the world. When Rosalind and Orlando fall in love, they are unable to act on their feelings. Forced to flee for their lives into the Forest of Arden, they find themselves entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust, and mistaken identity in one of Shakespeare’s great comedies. Will the forest heal the family feud? Performance starts at 7pm. Tickets are $28. Cash bar available one hour before show time.
