A lot to like in 'As You Like It'

December 17, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Only four days remain to see Center Stage's production of Shakespeare's "As You Like It," with its strong performances by Diana LaMar and Stephen Barker Turner as the play's central lovers, Rosalind and Orlando, and a hilarious turn by Robert Dorfman as Touchstone, the court jester.

Director Irene Lewis' production features a number of delightful, unconventional touches, such as the inclusion of an on-stage musician (Karen Hansen), who walks through the action playing instruments ranging from Renaissance strings to bowed saw and accordion. It's a production that leaves its characters happier, saner and more at peace and conveys that feeling to the audience as well.

Show times at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., are 7 p.m. today and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $10-$45. Call 410-332-0033.
