As You Like It

“As You Like It” is a play of passion, transformation, and deceit. In this modern re-imagining of Shakespeare’s famous comedy, the urban inhabitants of the turbulent court find themselves thrust into the tranquil forest of Arden where a tale is spun of usurping Dukes, a cross-dressing heroine, and a young man’s journey to win the heart of a beautiful princess. Along the way you’ll meet the likes of a headstrong luchador wrestler, a melancholy philosopher, and a lustful jester of the court. Join us in discovering how this fairytale, which examines the many faces of love, turns out.

Or will the strain of his own holiday tragedy overshadow the true meaning of the season?
