As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: disguises and love notes, poetry and brilliant conversation, gentle satire and full-on slapstick, and running throughout it all, passion! This staging, performed at Shakespeare's Globe, London's faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse designed in 1599, spotlights Naomi Frederick, Jack Laskey, Laura Rogers, Jamie Parker, and Dominic Rowan in the roles of Rosalind, Orlando, Celia, Oliver, and the irrepressible Touchstone. "This is an As You Like It bursting with youth and vigour," says The Independent (London), a "boisterous, rambunctious new production." Directed by Thea Sharrock.
