WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Everyone needs to escape to the country sometimes! In As You Like It, audiences join Rosalind, one of Shakespeare's greatest heroines, as she travels into the merry Forest of Arden, leaving behind the politics of the city. Disguising herself as a man and accompanied by her cousin Celia, she embarks on a hilarious and romantic journey during which she finds love, laughter, and maybe even herself. Shakespeare's beloved comedy is brought to joyful new life in a production filled with music inspired by the jazz era. The show stars Hannah Cabell (The Father) as Rosalind; Academy, Emmy, and Tony Award winner Ellen Burstyn (The Exorcist) as Jacques, and André De Shields (The Full Monty) as Touchstone. Tony winner John Doyle directs.
