** DC AREA PREMIERE **

Named one of The New York Times’ best shows of 2017, Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery’s musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT is an immersive dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia, escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place of transformation, where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find community and acceptance under the stars.

We are transforming our space for AS YOU LIKE IT, offering an immersive experience. Seating will be on all four sides of the stage with added stage balcony seating (requiring stairs). For more information on ADA and wheelchair accessible seating, please contact our Box Office at boxoffice@keegantheatre.com or 202-265-3767 x1

“This AS YOU LIKE IT offers a utopian vision of a society that favors acceptance over division, honesty over obfuscation, grace over meanness.”  – The New York Times

“… an overflowing cornucopia of song, dance, joy, and love. …this AS YOU LIKE IT coasts along the surface of Shakespeare’s original, but exploring themes of love and acceptance more deeply through songs that reassert the message.”  – Theater Pizzazz

AS YOU LIKE IT is presented by arrangement with The Musical Company, LP, 214 Sullivan Street, Ste. 4, New York, NY, 10012-1354. www.themusicalcompany.com Phone: (212) 598-2204. Email: info@themusicalcompany.com.
