Studio 58 has opened the 52nd season with As You Like It.
Synopsis: 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.
