Frog & Peach Theatre Company has returned to the stage with their take on Shakespeare's As You Like It at Theatre 71. Performances for the comedy began September 30 and are scheduled through October 23.
Rosalind and Celia flee into the Forest of Arden for romance, music, and adventures in this cross-dressing comedy. There, they meet the lovesick Orlando, femme fatale Phebe, the wickedly funny Touchstone, the dreamy Jaques, and the glamorous court in exile led by Queen Senior. Directed by Lynnea Benson, the production features music by Ted Zurkowski and lyrics by WS.
Starring in the cast are Alyssa Diamond, Amy Frances Quint, Ange Berneau, Anuj Parikh, Bellamy Ridinger, Calley Light, Camelia Iturregui Fuertes, Casey Young, Coleman Shu-Tung, David Arthur Bachrach, David Elyha, Eric Doss, Hester Wilkinson, Jaixa Irizarry, John L. Payne, Jonathan Reed Wexler, Kyle Primack, Martin Bodenheimer, Riley Scott Steven Ungar, Tony Savage Thorn, Ty-Quan Payne, and Vivien Landau (Shiva Baby).
The creative team comprises set and costume designer Asa Benally, Obie- and Drama Desk-winning lighting designer Dennis Parichy, choreographer Geneva Jenkins, violence coordinator Marcus Watson, and production stage manager Sydnee Davis.
