Love is merely a madness; there is a madness running rampant through the forest of Arden— strewing its favors hither and thither, mostly in the form of poetic verse all about the stage and the house of The Folger Theatre. As You Like It, the Bard’s great love story among the comedies, comes to the 2017-side of the season under the Direction of Gaye Taylor Upchurch and brings with it a thorough examination of love in many flavorful varieties.
All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. On the Folger Theatre stage, they have their entrances and their exits, all overseen, given form and structure, and creatively envisioned by Director Gaye Taylor Upchurch. In a TheatreBloom exclusive interview, we sit down with the show’s Director to get her take on what’s up with As You Like It.
Thank you for giving us some time,
Folger Theatre would be monstrous glad if you’d take up a cottage— who doesn’t love a good cottage— in town and stay a spell to celebrate their 25th Anniversary season as it gets underway with a treasured classic novel adapted to the stage in this their production of Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility. Adapted by Kate Hamill and Directed by Eric Tucker, this charmingly spellbinding production whisks you away from the dreary troubles of the modern world and places you in a world of romance,
