The Theatre Project presents Shakespeare's classic pastoral comedy. More…
'Love is merely a madness' in Shakespeare’s romantic comedy featuring thwarted lovers, a clown, and women disguised as men. Banished Rosalind finds Orlando and a world of passionate possibility in the Forest of Arden. Enchantment abounds as chance encounters blossom into the entanglement of love. Through mischievous misunderstandings, pleasing poetry and hilarious happenstance, 'As You Like It' shows that the forces of romance and justice can make an out-of-kilter world right again. Part of the Theater Project's Shakespeare Off-Broadway series.
