San Diego Event: “As You Like It” Play

As You Like It

Run to it! Dana Green’s doing a spectacular Rosalind, one of Shakespeare’s smartest women, and the Adrian Noble-directed production’s a wall-to-wall charmer. Banished gentry flee to a wintry Forest of Arden (Deidre Clancy’s costumes sport a modern dress, Nordic look), where they re-balance themselves and, in the case of swoony Orlando, learn to fall in love. The ensemble work is tops, as are individual efforts by Jacques C. Smith, as the melancholy Jacques, Dan Amboyer as Orlando, Vivia Font, as Ceilia, and, of course Green’s conjuring Rosalind [runs in repertory with Inherit the Wind and Richard III].

Critic’s Pick.
