San Francisco Shakespeare Festival presents Free Shakespeare in the Park-- As You Like It: a new musical, with 9 original songs by the Kilbanes. Bring your family, friends, a blanket, and a picnic to enjoy this classic comedy of disguise and young love.
In Shakespeare’s popular comedy, Rosalind, disguised as a boy, hides with her cousin in the pastoral Forest of Arden, while whimsical, lovelorn Orlando searches for her. SF Shakes subtitles its version “a new musical” and boasts original music: Nine of the songs are composed by the terrific local duo the Kilbanes, two by actor Phil Wong. Artistic director Rebecca J. Ennals helms a cast of more than a dozen.
