What Audience Members Said About Our Production of AS YOU LIKE IT:


Just one word! Magical and Hip! Oops, that is two words. Add passionate! It is a beautifully directed, designed, acted, lighted, managed, and produced show. Bravo! The cast is having so much fun with this show, it makes my heart happy. Thank you to all involved.

Merely Players, you keep outdoing yourselves!!!! What joyful grooviness filled the Underground yesterday with your “As You Like It”! I laughed and, yes, shed a few tears as your band of players astounded and delighted. THANK YOU!! 

Like many people, I struggled to enjoy Shakespeare after being forced to read it in school. I have to say, I really, really enjoyed this one! By far the coolest Shakespeare I’ve seen. This was a top notch production!

This show was so well done! The sets, the props, the music…so good! The acting was outstanding!!! Orlando and Rosalind had such chemistry, it was a joy to watch. Thanks to everyone who worked on this play. It was fantastic!


Hands-down, the best production of AS YOU LIKE IT that I have ever seen (and I have seen many). I didn’t want it to end. Sheer delight.
