All The World’s A Stage
When Sir Peter Hall’s
“As You Like It”
Comes To The Wilbur

Boston Part of Exclusive Three-City Tour

Sir Peter Hall’s new production of William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, “As You Like It,” will visit Boston’s Wilbur Theatre for a limited six week engagement as part of an exclusive three-city tour. Performances run November 11 through December 12.

“As You Like It” premiered in August of 2003 at England’s famed Theatre Royal Bath and was met by dazzling reviews from London’s leading newspapers.

“As You Like It” tells the story of Rosalind and her cousin Celia who have run away to the idyllic Forest of Arden, populated by a eclectic mixture of colorful rustics and witty courtiers. Sir Peter’s daughter Rebecca Hall will play Rosalind.

Dressed as a boy in order to divert suspicion, Rosalind encounters the infatuated Orlando. When she offers to cure him of his love sickness by letting him woo her as if she were his sweetheart, the stage is set for blind love to overcome one misguided fool after another.

Sir Peter Hall is one of the British theater world’s most distinguished theater and opera directors. Founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company, he was also Director of the National Theatre from 1973 to 1988 and Artistic Director of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera from 1984 to 1990.

In 1988 he launched the Peter Hall Company with productions of “Orpheus Descending” with Vanessa Redgrave and “The Merchant of Venice” with Dustin Hoffman.

Tickets for "As You Like It" are available at the Wilbur box office or by calling 617-931-2787.
