As You Like It Information

After this production was canceled in 2020, The Public Theater rounds out its 60th anniversary Shakespeare in the Park season with a return of the Public Works' production of As You Like It, adapted by Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery, with a score by Shaina Taub. Check back for information on free As You Like It tickets.

Public Works’ As You Like It is an immersive 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. Banished into the forest, they find community and acceptance under the stars.
