February 14, 2013 – As You Like It

As You Like ItDo you find Shakespeare difficult to read or understand? Well, that’s probably because it was meant to be on stage – the way to understand Shakespeare is to see it performed, by one of the most praised touring companies in America – The Acting Company. “All the world’s a stage”…one of Shakespeare’s most famous quotes comes from As You Like It, and it is a metaphor of love; it’s power, madness, danger, humor and reflection. On one level, it is a diverting amusement. On a deeper level, it is a journey of discovery, in which the characters gain knowledge of themselves and the world. Come see Shakespeare the way it was meant to be seen – live – on stage!
