Love’s Hard, Comic Work, on a Stage Most Worldly
*By CHARLES ISHERWOOD
Published: July 8, 2011
"The winter’s wind seems particularly biting in the forest of Arden that has sprung up in the Park Avenue Armory, just as the summer’s heat has begun to reach a peak. If you’re looking for an escape from swampy weather, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of “As You Like It” might prove just the ticket. Michael Boyd’s staging of one of Shakespeare’s most joyous comedies seems determined to remind us of the high cost of love’s pleasures, to the point that you begin to wonder if the prize could ever be worth the perils endured. The production emanates a distinct, unsettling chill, at least until the courtiers and rustics seeking love and sustenance in the woods begin to see a few green leaves sprouting from the trees, along with all that poetry.
