As You Like It

Part of Shrewd's new series, Shakespeare: REPRESENT

 

Directed by Lily Wolff with original music by T. Lynn Mikeska

 

This gender-bending, music-infused take on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy is directed by Lily Wolff with original music composed by T. Lynn Mikeska, and boasts an incredible creative team including award-winning actors and designers, ready to transport you to the magical world of Arden. Our female-dominated cast is comprised of 9 women and 5 men, playing 24 roles, with most actors playing cross-gender. Expect to see an As You Like It that stays unwaveringly true to Shakespeare's text, but an As You Like It unlike ANY you've ever seen before.
