"All the world's a stage..." and a very talented group of actors will play their parts in this summer's Citi Performing Arts Center Free Shakespeare production of 'As You Like It,' to be performed at the Parkman Bandstand on the Boston Common. 'As You Like It' continues the popular midsummer tradition that has brought Shakespeare under the stars to more than 885,000 people over the last decade. Known as one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies, 'As You Like It' is a captivating exploration of status, power and the bewitching mystery of love. The memorable romp through the Forest of Arden follows the adventures of Rosalind, a good-hearted optimist, and her pursuit for true love. From sorrow to laughter and banishment to marriage, the play involves conversations about life, love and a clash of views, with an endearing mixture of romantic and slapstick comedy. The game of love is played out until identities are revealed and all is resolved.
