Description

As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia and Touchstone the court jester, to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. Historically, critical response has varied, with some critics finding the work of lesser quality than other Shakespearean works and some finding the play a work of great merit. The play features one of Shakespeare's most famous and oft-quoted speeches, "All the world's a stage", and is the origin of the phrase "too much of a good thing". The play remains a favourite among audiences and has been adapted for radio, film, and musical theatre.

Professional reviews

"Disguises, word play, and mistaken identity abound in this sophisticated tale of love and loyalty. Rosalind, exiled by her wicked uncle, meets Orlando in the Forest of Arden. They fall in love, but confusion ensues because of her male disguise. By the time the curtain falls, reconciliation and forgiveness blossom, and all is well. Another play in the fine Arkangel Complete Shakespeare series is performed by accomplished British players. Stephen Mangan and Niamh Cusack are especially strong as the lead characters. The original music and singing give the production a true theatrical feel. Liner notes include a good act-by-act summary of the play. P.B.J. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
