William Shakespeare’s As You Like It
Jan 11, 2017 - Feb 05, 2017
Jobsite is excited to bring back Shakespeare in another Cigar City setting: As You Like It will be set in present-day Tampa. 2015’s Twelfth Night, set in 1926 Ybor City, was one of Jobsite’s most successful productions of all time and the company is equally hopeful for this classic tale of love, lust and mistaken identity. Featuring some of the most famous lines penned in the English language, As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics all become a muddle in a clever and astute comedy that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.
There is a 10-minute late seating hold at the top of this show. Arrive early and enjoy the soundtrack from New Granada Records!
Our production of As You Like It and the affiliated outreach initiatives are made possible by a generous grant from:
