As You Like It: A Play in Eight Cities
Miranda may have been born to play Rosalind, in hometown Sydney no less.
Just before opening in Central Park, Viggo finds the key to Jaques.
Billy the romantic hero? The director of the Glasgow Rep wants to make Orlando interesting.
Chewing the scenery a bit, Ian's happy to be Adam at the Barbican.
Dom hams it up as Touchstone in Bristol.
Not a big break, and Newcastle, but Orlando is thrilled even to be Corin.
PunkShakes in LA, Elijah plays Silvius just to hang with the musicians.
John thinks he's found his niche at RSC: Duke Senior today, Macbeth tomorrow.
In As You Like it, the young hero is named Orlando, beloved of the much more interesting Rosalind. Jaques is a philosopher, Duke Senior the overthrown good ruler, Adam the faithful servant, Touchstone a clown, Silvius and Corin shepherds (and comic relief). They all end up in the Forest of Arden wherein there is confusion, disguise, philosophy and love.
