Escape with Rosalind and Celia into the Forest of Arden, a world where desire is turned upside-down, women disguise themselves as men and "love is merely a madness." As You Like It boasts one of Shakespeare's most vibrant heroines in Rosalind, the beautiful daughter of an exiled duke who falls madly in love with the dashing Orlando. When she's banished from the duke's court, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy and flees to the forest. Along the way, Rosalind, Orlando and the other motley characters fill the forest of Arden with music, dancing and pure romance. Colonials, an American Shakespeare Company, brings As You Like It to Santa Monica's Miles Memorial Playhouse in a lively, authentic production that places focus on the Bard's original text.
