Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0716 Re: The Public Theater's AS YOU LIKE IT

A few years back, at the first New York Fringe Festival a Canadian group
brought in a production of As You Like It with only 4 actors.

That production surprised me with its clarity and effectiveness. While
the trend toward small cast Shakespeare (Measure with 5 actors,
Cymbeline with 6, etc.) began due to economics, it has actually led to
some interesting productions highlighting the structure of the plays,
since parallels and contrasts of situation and character read so
strongly in this sort of production.
