As You Like It
@ New American Shakespeare Tavern   WED JUNE 15 thru SUN JULY 3
"All the world's a stage . . ." We end the season as we began, with another trip into Shakespeare's enchanted woods where Rosalind disguises herself as a man as Orlando litters the woods with love notes praising her beauty and virtue.

Will the two lovers be united? Will Orlando survive the wrestling match? Will you have a great time? Here's a hint: in June there's no better place to be than in Shakespeare's woods at The Shakespeare Tavern.
