Lean & Hungry Theater: As You Like It

Play associated audio
Lean & Hungry Theater sets Shakespeare's classic comedy As You Like It in the flower-child era of the 1960s. Banished from the well-bred, wealthy halls of their childhood home, Celia and Rosalind seek refuge at the Arden Music Festival, disguised as concert-goers. For a few whirlwind days of peace, love and music, hippies and rockers, lovers and clowns woo, philosophize, and generally enjoy the freedom of life away from the constraints of stuffy society.
