Fun production of As You Like It at Volunteer Park. Photos are a little washed out, taken looking towards the sun with my phone camera. (Click either photo to enlarge.) GreenStage is a wonderful organization, bringing Shakespeare into the parks every summer. This was an excellent production.
One of the lead actors pictured here, Kate Kraay, once played a small role in a ridiculous short play I wrote, called “Date Me.” That was a science fiction love story that was mostly about having love affairs with copies of yourself from parallel universes, but also involved a woman who was dating an intelligent monkey, and a guy with an aquarium implanted in his buttocks. Hopefully Kate has banished these embarrassing details from her memory. She was a commanding Rosalind in As You Like It; a very fine actor.
Our friend Mok Moser (on the right in first photo) has to be revived after a hilarious fight.
