BWW Reviews: AS YOU LIKE IT - You Will Love It
by Teresa Rodrick - Jun 16, 2014

I have seen a few different versions of AS YOU LIKE IT over the years. I think when watching Shakespeare it's gets easier and more enjoyable each time you see it, since you understand what is happening. However, I think this production does such a good job of telling the story through the actions they chose to go along with the dialogue, that someone who knew nothing about the story could tell you what it was about.

BWW Reviews: AS YOU LIKE IT - Comedic Farce Delights at Great Lakes Theater
by Roy Berko - Apr 8, 2014

What do the phrases, 'all the world's a stage' and 'too much of a good thing' have in common? They are both quotes from Shakespeare's pastoral comedy 'As You Like It.' As is true of that genre, the play, which was written early in 1600, deals with shepherds and the rustic life, but, also concerns love, in its various forms. (more...)

BWW Reviews: A Wonderfully Delightful MUCH ADO at Great Lakes Theater
by Roy Berko - Apr 1, 2013

Boy hates girl. Girl hates boy. Boy overhears that girl is secretly in love with boy; girl hears vice versa. Other boy and girl love each other, but something gets in the way of their happiness. That's the basic premise of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, which is now on stage at Great Lakes Theatre. Throw in a couple of interesting subplots, including an idiotic sheriff, a phony death, an irrational lover (is there any other kind?), and a vengeful half-brother, and you have the makings of one of William Shakespeare's best comedies. In fact, the fifth best of all of the Bard's plays, according to a renowned Shakespeare expert. (more...)
