SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK 2012
THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON OF THE DELACORTE THEATER
AS YOU LIKE IT
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Daniel Sullivan
Featuring MacIntyre Dixon, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Omar Metwally, and Lily Rabe
June 5 - 30
In As You Like It, Rosalind, Shakespeare's most breathtaking heroine, and her boyfriend Orlando find themselves in the enchanted Forest of Arden, where all the world's a stage, and where sudden infatuation is as confusing as it is beautiful. Along with other "country copulatives," they discover that nothing transforms, redeems, or enriches experience quite as powerfully as love. As You Like It has everything we adore about Shakespearean comedy: mistaken identity, cross-dressing, madness, mayhem, rage, lust, laughter, and of course plenty of romance, both heartbreaking and joyous.
INTO THE WOODS
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Timothy Sheader
Co-Directed by Liam Steel
July 23 - August 25
In Into the Woods, a witch's curse condemns the Baker and his Wife to a life without children. They embark on a quest to find the four items required to break the spell: the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold. Will they succeed? And what happens after "happily ever after?" A Tony Award-winning masterpiece by musical theater giants Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, Into the Woods is a witty and irreverent reimagining of beloved classic fairytales: Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Cinderella.
This production is based on the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre London Production produced by Timothy Sheader and William Village for Regent's Park Theatre Ltd.
