Description An all-male cast cavorts through the Forest of Arden "as they did in the golden world" in this lush and lusty production of As You Like It. They are the celebrated actors of Cheek by Jowl, often claimed to be one of Britian's most consistently daring and imaginative theater companies. Declan Donnellan, an acclaimed new innovative Enlgish director, best known for his Royal National Theatre production of Tony Kushner's Angels in America, directs. Enchanted by "the glowing Mozartian generosity" of this As You Like It, The Times of London called it "warm, witty and brilliant." Truly provocative and delightfully unconventional, we call this Shakespeare at its best.
