With sunny days upon us, it’s time to start making those summer evening plans. What’s better than a little pastoral entertainment — by Mr. Shakespeare, mind you — to get the season started? Set in France, “As You Like It” is a timely ode to nature and to love.
According to the Seattle Shakespeare Company, here’s what we have to look forward to:
“Exiled from home and forced to wander the forest with a clown…what’s a girl to do? How about fool everyone by dressing like a guy. Rosalind and a merry band of outlaws find love tucked among the trees and glens of the Forest of Arden. George Mount, who staged our inventive and thrilling production of ‘The Tempest,’ conjures up a romantic staging of this enchanting comedy.”
