SHAKESPEARE’S FIRST ACTS: AS YOU LIKE IT
Director James Dacre, who recently staged the play at Shakespeare’s Globe, discusses the first act with Sophie Reynolds. This interview is part of theatreVOICE’s new series for Olympics year 2012, looking at the beginning of each of Shakespeare’s plays. Recorded at Shakespeare’s Globe, 24 August 2012.
It’s fascinating really to ask at the beginning of this play whether Shakespeare intends the equivalent of a cinematic jump cut.
