As You Like It

 

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 wanderers find love tucked among the trees 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.

Love’s Labour’s Lost

 

In this exuberant romantic comedy youthful idealism gets derailed by love. The King of Navarre and his buddies have plans to immerse themselves in their studies swearing off less civilized pursuits — namely girls. After the Princess of France arrives with her ladies on a diplomatic mission, the young men’s hearts melt along with their brainy resolve. Playful pranks, witty wordplay and moony wooing give way to more serious matters that reveal the cost of real love.
