William Shakespeare’s As you like it has been called his Romantic Comedy (RomCom).
It’s got laughs, love and rejection, women dressed as men, men dressed as wrestlers.
And Director Daryl Cloran was challenged to weave the magic of The Beatles into the dialogue.
Instead of soliloquies..we get I am the Walrus.
25 Beatles songs, William Shakespeare AND wrestling. Let’s go.
Opens tonight at The Citadel in Edmonton
“As You Like It” cleverly blends Shakespeare’s gift with language and 25 Beatles songs performed live, including She Loves You, I Want to Hold Your Hand, Let It Be and Here Comes the Sun. Will you love it? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
