WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Pulse Ensemble Theatre presents its seventh Harlem Summer Shakespeare production, As You Like It, at New York City's beautiful riverside amphitheater in Riverbank State Park (145th Street and Riverside Drive). The multi-ethnic, open air production of William Shakespeare's comedy is free to the public on a first come, first served basis. As is the tradition with Pulse Theatre Ensemble's Harlem Summer Shakespeare, this production keeps Shakespeare's language intact whilst updating the world in which the characters live. In this contemporary version of As You Like It, Frederick is a millionaire in the image of Hugh Hefner or Donald Trump. He believes money rules the day. Duke Senior and his followers, on the other hand, live a rustic, free-spirited life somewhere between the 1960's hippies and the Hari Krishna followers.
