all the world's a stage

Getting ready for 16 students ( 2 missing so 18 ... our top number like this PNEU school
in Cambridge) are coming tonight with snacks and a play : As You Like It.

A musical comedy by the Bard: more songs than any other play. Thinking of Much Ado about Nothing  with its songs.  Thankfully, I have many musicians in the tutorial. 

Looking up performances:

Helen Mire, who I just saw in 100 Foot Journey, played Rosalind in 1978.

Lawrence Olivier played Orlando in his first Shakespeare performance: 1936

Kenneth Branagh, my favorite Shakespeare actor, directed a performance set in Japan?
2006. Kevin Kline got an award for his performance as Jacques.
