As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Emily Morrison Weeks
We that are true lovers run into strange capers.
In As You Like It, Shakespeare introduced the world to Rosalind, one of the all-time romantic and comedic heroines. It’s a tale of betrayal and destiny, of love and pursuit, of sheep and trees, and of learning to be the best you can possibly be.
