Shakespeare's As You Like It has a familiar comedic formula: heroes banished to the
wilderness, girls in pants, witty fools, characters breaking into song, and multiple couplings, but its clever banter and merry tone is unique within the canon. In BSR's upcoming adaptation, the return to the simple life in the Forest of Arden is set in the nostalgic Americana of the 1930s, specifically as popularized by the cover artists of the Saturday Evening Post of that time, Norman Rockwell and J.C. Leyendecker, among others. Incorporated into this pastoral frolic is music from NYC folk trio The Roches, as well as original collaborative music from the cast.
