Quick and Quotable
- From the play: “Oh that’s a brave man, he writes brave verses, speaks brave words, swears brave oaths, and breaks them bravely.”
- From the director: “Motivate your exit. Celebrate the fact that you are gonna exit and come back on.”
- From the cast: (Oliver to Touchstone) “Touchstone, I challenge you to a douche-off.”
Production Insights: It’s Thursday, and we are down to the wire in terms of time, since we perform Sunday. And while there is always going to be some slight feeling of nervousness when one is so close to the opening of their show, the feeling that I am experiencing more strongly is that of confidence.
I am totally confident in our cast’s ability to perform splendidly, even beyond whatever arbitrary line they have set for themselves in terms of ability or courage. I am so infinitely proud of everybody, and I am going to miss everyone so terribly. ‘As You Like It’ will always hold a very special place in my heart, and I will always hold the happy memories made here very near and dear to my heart.
