Solid acting, Great staging, Finds every drop of humor, Delightful, Unusual

See it if you enjoy imaginative WS prodns; this one illuminates and enlivens AYLI. Theme of the power of love shines brightly. Music enhances/delights

Don't see it if you only like traditional WS, altho he'd approve of HID's lively, funny version. I was engaged every moment, and laughed often. Bravo, HID!

Engaging, Funny, Swift, Human, Stripped-down

See it if you’d like to see a stripped down, funny, elemental production of 1 of Shakespeare’s signature romantic comedies.

Don't see it if you need elaborate sets or require aesthetic distance from the performers: here you & the actors are occupying the same milieu. Read more

A Work Unfinishing
July 23rd, 2018

"Another tight, terrific, and tuneful comedy from the Hamlet Isn't Dead crew...Laws achieves a sweet and joyful condensing of the comedy, keeping Rosalind at the center as the unassuming mastermind of much of the goings on in a place she barely knows. This cast is composed entirely of women or gender nonconforming actors, and every last one of them is a delight."

“'As You Like It' invites serious dramaturgical meddling, which can either perform disastrously or, as in the case of Hamlet Isn't Dead's all-female summer production, can illuminate Shakespeare's themes...It seamlessly trims Shakespeare's fat...The diverse cast is uniformly excellent, and it's a relief to see women of every ethnicity and body shape shine in comic turns and heartfelt moments...Fantabulous music composed by Joy and performed by the whole cast.”
