THE IMAGINATION BEHIND DESIGN
Preview performances for the 2017 season of the Utah Shakespeare Festival are only a month away. So, the action in our theatres and shops is hectic and contagious. Designs are fast becoming reality. In this slideshow, you can get just a taste of the ideas behind what you will see in As You Like It this summer. The costume designs are by Lauren T. Roark, and the scenery designs are by Scott Davis.

INDIVIDUAL VERSIONS OF REALITY
In As You Like It, Rosalind opposes Jaques’s melancholy. She sees all the perils of marriage that either of the pessimists could name, but she also sees the pleasures and the epiphanies. In the end, Jaques’s dark withdrawal parallels and points up Rosalind’s bright participation. His choice does not undercut, but confirms hers; his narrowness makes the vistas which she opens all the more breathtaking.

"AY, NOW AM I IN ARDEN"
The premise of As You Like It and the title itself suggest that the play will be a simple pastoral romance. However, the play is considerably more complex and infinitely more entertaining than the fanciful pastorals of Shakespeare's contemporaries. Shakespeare has reminded us: what will make us truly happy, or at the very least content, lies not in the treacherous peaks of romanticism or the dark chasms of cynicism, but somewhere in the vast plains between the two.
