A delightful comedy of love and change
Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match. Disguised as a boy she seeks out her father in the Forest of Arden with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone. Each of them discovers a special someone, and learns in their own way the gentle art of love and wooing.
One of Shakespeare’s great comedies with some of his best loved characters, As You Like It flips the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics run amok in a play that reflects on how confounding yet undeniably pleasurable life can be.
“As You Like It tells the tale of people fleeing tyranny for the uncertain sanctuary of a mythical forest. In exile, Shakespeare’s characters redefine themselves and try to make a new life in their new adopted home. This is the context in which we are going to build an exciting new production for Studio 58 audiences. I look forward to welcoming you all to our new theatrical home away from home, full of love and music in the forest of Arden.” – Michael Scholar Jr.
