As You Like It

We attended the Georgia Shakespeare performace of As You Like It, by William Shakespeare. It was fine.

As you can see from the image, the play was set with a groovy 70′s fashion statement. The first act wasn’t so 70′s as to be overwhelming, but the second act felt like Austin Powers. Alas.

Still, the performance was good, even if they (I think) edited it down enough that it was confusing in places. That may just be how the play is put together. I understand that this is not one of Shakespeare’s most critically acclaimed plays.

Georgia Shakespeare is always fun, even if they play is “ehh” because we picnic beforehand. We’re looking forward to the next play, The Merchant of Venice.
