"Love is merely a madness" in this romantic comedy featuring thwarted lovers, a clown and women disguised as men. The duke's daughter and her cousin flee a dangerous situation at the royal court and end up in the mysterious Forest of Arden. There they encounter comical twists and turns on their merry romp toward an eventual happy ending, where true love wins out. Through mischievous misunderstandings, pleasing poetry and hilarious happenstance, As You Like It shows that the forces of romance and justice can make an out-of-kilter world right again. Internationally acclaimed Shakespearean director Michael Attenborough, whose only previous U.S. work has been in New York, selected As You Like It for his much-anticipated American regional debut, as he regards the play as "very personal and warm spirited."
