“As You Like It” Shakespeare on the State House Steps Staged Reading

Saturday, September 18, 2021

Shakespeare’s ultimate rom-com– As You Like It takes the stage – or rather the steps of the State House in an active staged-reading, using the First Folio “cue scripts” (as they did in Shakespeare’s time), directed by Ann Harvey – cofounder of Lost Nation Theater’s Fall Foliage Shakespeare program. The Bard’s romp thru the Forest of Arden is a delicate dance of comedy and romance. Times Argus Arts Editor Jim Lowe says, “As You Like It has more witty one-liners than any sitcom, and they are infinitely more delicious in Williams Shakespeare’s hands.” LNT is thrilled to ‘reset” or “begin again” with As You Like It, which was the company’s first Fall Foliage Shakespeare show back in 1995. The play will be cut to be performed within 90-minutes, no intermission. Audience are asked to bring their own cushions or chairs – seating will also be on the steps; to adhere to social distancing guidelines, and to wear a mask.
