As You Like It, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival

As You Like It
Presented in English
Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, Garrison, New York, USA
June 7 – August 27, 2016

“All the world’s a stage in the Forest of Arden as young lords and ladies cast off the stuffy conventions of their lives at court -- and are swiftly entangled in a merry game of romantic antics, cross-dressing chaos and mistaken identity. Savor the liberating powers of friendship, love and imagination with Shakespeare’s most exquisite comedy and two of his most enchanting heroines – Rosalind and Celia. Featuring full-company songs by Beacon/Brooklyn-based composer Heather Christian, show-stopping choreography by Alexandra Beller (Bedlam's Sense and Sensibility, HVSF's Two Gentlemen of Verona), and a host of fan favorites and rising talents, AS YOU LIKE IT is this summer's standout comedy for all ages.” (Information from the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival website)
