CREATIVES: “As You Like It” at the Cherry | John Drinkwater with Peter Bakija

AS YOU LIKE IT-promo-shot-smaller-

The Cherry Arts brings its signature adventurous, irreverent theatrical style to Shakespeare for the very first time! As You Like It, which runs from August 3rd through August 13th, is one of the bard’s most beloved comedies, featuring one of his most exciting heroines, Rosalind, who dresses as a man and marches into the forest to save the day.

The play is chock full of songs —which will be written by some of Ithaca’s most iconic songwriters including Jennie Lowe Stearns, Nate Silas Richardson (of the Sim Redmond Band) and Maddy Walsh (of The Blind Spots).

WRFI's Peter Bakija speaks with actor John Drinkwater (who plays the role of Silvius in the production).
