AS YOU LIKE IT (A NEW ADAPTATION) by Strangeloop Theatre
The irreverent show leaps out of Shakespeare's restrictive, courtly environs and explores the wilderness of Arden from a wholly new perspective. Connecting classic with contemporary, the piece collaboratively reworks familiar characters and situations into an interactive, modern, playful experience. Join Orlando, Rosalind, Celia, Jaques, and Touchstone on a surprising new road, exploring whether all the world truly is a stage.
