As You Like It

“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players"

When aristocrats are banished from the royal court and forced to create new lives among shepherds and hunters in the forest of Arden, they discover more than they ever imagined. Shakespeare's witty romance is about the search for true love in a world full of possibility, transformation, and imagination. Full of music, laughter, and astounding observations on the meaning of life, As You Like It is one of Shakespeare's most delightful and deep comedies.

Into the Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Book by James Lapine

“You've changed, You're daring. You're different in the woods.”

Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk - all your favorite fairy tale characters are featured in this darkly comedic modern musical from the great Stephen Sondheim. Into the Woods features some of his wittiest lyrics as well as beautiful melodies, and has a storybook narrative full of clever wordplay and compelling themes. This Tony-Award winning musical puts its own twist on the traditional fairy tale adventures in the woods, and explores what happens after "happily ever after."

The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged)

By Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield

"Exchange the isolation of the iPhone for the gentle idylls of the iamb!”

Three actors, 37 plays, and one evening of hilarious Shakespearean fun. Clever mix-ups and mash-ups come together at frenzied speed to aid this zany troupe in the attempt to get through all of Shakespeare's plays in one performance, without offending the Shakespearean scholars (excessively). Famous quotes and mis-quotes abound in this madcap romp through all of Shakespeare's plays that the London Evening Standard called "widely imaginative, thoroughly affectionate to its source material, and above all, infectious fun."
