About the show

This is Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy about flirtation, friendship and mistaken identity. “As You Like It” is a 60-minute light-hearted look at the fickle and passionate nature of love. Will wit and merriment overcome jealousy and deception? How will true love ever find its way, lost in the delightful madness of the forest? Rosalind, her cousin Celia, and her clown Touchstone encounter a number of colorful, backwoods characters in a tale of romance – or something like it.
