|A wondrous romantic comedy that celebrates
just how bewildering (yet utterly pleasurable) life can be!
City Theatre Austin continues its 2018 spring season with William Shakespeare’s most
beloved romantic comedy As You Like It. “All the world’s a stage!” proclaims
Shakespeare. With music, dance, and glorious battles, gender roles, nature, and politics
all become a muddle in this glorious tale that celebrates redemption, family, and just how
bewildering, yet utterly pleasurable, life can be.
“Do you not know I am a woman? When I think, I must speak.”
Exiled under threat of death, the irresistible heroine Rosalind, escapes into the wild and
unpredictable Forest of Arden. Disguised as a boy, she creates a world of her own,
reveling in her newfound independence. But her chance encounters with the love-struck
Orlando - and all the merry woods-dwelling misfits - complicate this new life. In the
enchanting thickets of the forest, will true love find its way? Can one desire too much of a
good thing? And do stories truly have more than “happy endings?”
“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
Many theatre-goers cite As You Like It as their favorite Shakespearean comedy. Why is
that? It doesn’t have the famous speeches or characters of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
or The Taming of the Shrew. But what it does have in spades is a powerful central
female character on the journey to find her true and one love. And, of course, it does
have two of Shakespeare’s favorite devices – cross-dressing and running away to the
woods. If you’ve never seen a Shakespearean production before, this is a great place to
start! On its 419th birthday, the play remains as fresh and funny as ever.
With a taste for Shakespeare, the show is directed by guest director Levi Gore, who has
performed in the CTC productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Julius
Caesar, and Hamlet. The show features the talented cast of Katie Beth Stubbs,
Madison Weinhoffer, Evan Hays, Denver Surgener, Moses Kutz, Andy Barham,
Alexzandria Siprian, Joe Kelley, Johnathan Vineyard, Elizabeth Bernhardt,
Justin Heller, Stacy Trammell, and Andrew Goldberg.
