As You Like It- Lean & Hungry Theater
Sunday, June 9, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Lean & Hungry 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 Arden Music Festival. What follows is peace, love, and music, as the characters woo, philosophize, and enjoy the freedom of life away from the constraints of stuffy society. This one- hour adaptation will be broadcast live on WAMU 88-5 FM, Washington's most listened to radio station. Each cast member plays multiple roles, and helps create live foley sound effects.
Doors open at 5pm for fun music and pre-show activities. The performance begins at 6pm. Come early, bring a picnic, and enjoy the evening outdoors.
Tickets are $17 for adults, and free for children 12 and under.
At 3pm you can join us for a special "behind the scenes" viewing of As You Like It for a discounted price. This performance will not be broadcast live on WAMU. Same rules apply, bring a picnic and enjoy the afternoon outdoors!
