The Lie Valiant
by uppermiddlebrow
Sunday, October 4, 2009
4.5
As You Like It's greatest pleasures include Shakespeare's witty speeches on the seven ages of man and seven types of lies along with such follies as the melodramatic encounter of Orlando and the lion, described by his brother. All of these are delivered - by Drew Reeves, JC Long and Mo Ralston respectively - with the fidelity, clarity and humor that show Tavern professionalism at its best.

Throw in highly likeable actors in the leading roles of Rosalind and Orlando - though I agree with Brad that some zing is missing in what felt like over-long scenes of wooing practice. Risk some foolery with Southern accents where it can do no harm. Season with some of the folio's prettiest music and marinate in the whole pastoral conceit of the Forest of Arden. Don't worry here about usurping of dukedoms - The Tempest, Measure for Measure or Lear are there to explore such political themes which merely lurk in the shadows of this comedy. And hey nonny no, you have one of the most approachable Shakespeare plays in a production fit to delight any jaded courtier or humble shepherd. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
