About this show

It's Shakespeare Woolly-style (well, sort of) in this gender-bending romp by one of New York's most innovative writer/performers. The plot of David Greenspan's She Stoops to Comedy barely hints at the multi-layered shenanigans -- an actress (played by a man) schemes to woo back her estranged female lover by playing Orlando (who we all know is a man, right?) opposite her lover's Rosalind in a summer-stock production of As You Like It. Multiple romances (of multiple kinds) ensue for a graceful and dazzling feast of pure theater. Howard Shalwitz directs. "80 minutes of near total delight" -- Village Voice "Unendingly clever" -- Variety
