As You Like It

Performance Dates

A wise fool and a melancholy malcontent, carnal vows and a cross-dressed gal, a magical forest, a wintry court and...Greco-Roman wrestling? All the world’s a stage in As You Like It, one of Shakespeare’s fullest comedies, where poetry, mistaken identities and true love lost and found abound. 

Artistic Director Michael Kahn has long anticipated bringing internationally acclaimed Shakespearean director Michael Attenborough to Washington—whose U.S. work is previously limited to London transfers to New York. As the choice for his American regional debut, Attenborough requested the light-hearted As You Like It, which he considers a “very personal and warm-spirited” play, perfectly suited to the intimate Lansburgh Theatre.
