“As You Like It” is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play by Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery and features music and lyrics by Taub. The production is directed by Jessica Fisch (’15 MFA).

Named one of The New York Times’ “Best Shows of 2017,” this ravishing new musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s play is an immersive dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia are banished to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place full of chance encounters and self-discovery where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find acceptance under the stars in this open-hearted celebration of the healing power of community.
