Public Works Dallas' AS YOU LIKE IT


Dallas Theater Center presents
Public Works Dallas' As You Like It

The art of creating art together.

by William Shakespeare, adapted by Shaina Taub and Laurie Woolery

Music and Lyrics by Shaina Taub
August 16 - 18 • Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Named one of The New York Times‘ best shows of 2017, As You Like It is an immersive dream-like tale of faithful friends, feuding families and lovers in disguise. Forced from their homes, Orlando, Duke Senior, his daughter Rosalind and niece Celia, escape to the Forest of Arden, a fantastical place of transformation, where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, the refugees find community and acceptance under the stars. Featuring an original folk-pop score by Taub (listen to all the numbers here), and running 90 minutes long, As You Like It is appropriate for all audiences and groups. Fall under love’s spell with this magical story!
