"...After a bit of fast-moving familial drama - including an elaborately choreographed wrestling match - the play begins properly with its main characters drifting towards the forest of Arden, where they forget their troubles and walk around talking about love, falling in love, helping others fall in love, et cetera. There's some antics, of course, but it's in Arden that As You Like It becomes its true self, a play that asks its characters and audiences to set aside conflict in favor of - as aptly put in the director's note - "grace, beauty, and [the] potential of humanity.""

"...Brave Spirits Theatre presents a rewarding rendering of Shakespeare’s oft-produced As You Like It. Under the engaging direction of Jessica Aimone, Brave Spirits’ production provides characters and couples who often can be found in the dimmer light of the background with an opportunity to shine in the spotlight. This is an egalitarian touch that does not take away from the main characters’ journey on their way to find true love and marriage. Aimone adds another dash of power-sharing; the show opens as if at a wedding party with guests (the audience) and the cast meeting and greeting one another to break the ice.
