As You Like It

REVIEW: With a little help from the Fab Four, Theatre Calgary’s As You Like It shines

This is a great production for anyone, whether or not they’re a Beatles/Shakespeare superfan. You couldn’t ask for a more accessible Shakespearean play, and the music is a perfect fit for the story.

Our favourite theatre productions of 2023, in Toronto and beyond

These shows have stood the test of at least a few weeks, if not several months. Their pleasures are not transitory, but mature and long-lasting. We think of them often.

REVIEW: As You Like It at Canadian Stage’s Dream in High Park

While two hours isn’t exactly a short play, this production is frivolous and fun: the perfect way to spend an evening in the park.
