Further casting has been announced for the 2012 Shakespeare in the Park's production of Shakesperae's comedy, As You Like It, directed by Daniel Sullivan, playing at the Delacorte Theater from 25 - 30 Jun 2012.

Joining the previously announced Lily Rabe (Seminar) as 'Rosalind,' are Stephen Spinella (Angels in America) as 'Jaques,' David Furr (The Importance of Being Earnest) as 'Orlando,' MacIntyre Dixon (Prelude to a Kiss) as 'Adam,' Renee Elise Goldsberry (Good People) as 'Celia' and Omar Metwally (Sixteen Wounded) as 'Oliver.'

Further casting to be announced.

The creative team features sets by John Lee Beatty, costumes by Jane Greenwood and sound by Acme Sound Partners.

As You Like It: Rosalind, and her boyfriend Orlando find themselves in the enchanted Forest of Arden, where all the world's a stage, and where sudden infatuation is as confusing as it is beautiful. Along with other 'country copulatives,' they discover that nothing transforms, redeems, or enriches experience quite as powerfully as love.

The Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary season, each year presents two theatrical productions for free at Central Park's Delacorte Theater. This year the productions are Shakespeare's As You Like it and and Stephen Sondheim's and James Lapine's Tony Award winning musical Into the Woods.
