Rosalind, arguably Shakespeare’s greatest female character, is banished from court and follows her exiled father into the untamed Forest of Arden. Disguised as a man for safety, Rosalind’s great wit and good nature show through her male trappings as she engages with fools and philosophers adrift in the woods and ultimately falls in love.

An LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Lynn Collins as Rosalind, Jeff Gardner as Silvius/Jaques de Boys, Alexis Jacknow as Audrey/Dennis/lords/pages, Stacy Keach as Jaques, James Marsters as Duke Frederick/Duke Senior, André Sogliuzzo as Adam/Charles/others, Summer Spiro as Phebe/Amiens/others, James Waterston as Orlando, Jules Wilcox as Celia, Matthew Wolf as Touchstone/Oliver; directed by Barry Creyton; and recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater in April 2016.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Chancing upon love and mischief in the fabled Forest of Arden, Lynn Collins and James Waterston—as the irresistible Rosalind and Orlando—romp along with the rest of the LATW ensemble in this spirited version of one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies. Stage and film veteran Stacy Keach takes a nice turn as the gruff and perceptive philosopher Jaques, who performs some of the most famous lines in theater history—“All the world’s a stage . . ." But the scene-stealer in this show may be singer-songwriter Summer Spiro, who contributed and performs a few original tunes for this live production. With its wordplay and classic rhythms, Shakespeare’s work is always a perfect fit for audio drama.”

About the Author

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.

About the Narrators

Stacy Keach is perhaps best known for his portrayal of hard-boiled detective Mike Hammer. He played Ken Titus on the sitcom Titus, Warden Henry Pope in the hit series Prison Break, and has been seen in numerous film and stage productions. He won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Ernest Hemingway and starred as Richard Nixon in the US National Tour of Frost/Nixon. His performance in the title role of King Lear has received international acclaim.

James Marsters, an Earphones Award–winning narrator, graduated from Davis High School and attended Juilliard, the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts, and the American Conservatory Theatre. After spending ten years doing stage work, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and television. He got his big break as Spike in Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He is also a talented musician; his band Ghost of the Robot has released three albums: Mad Brilliant, B-Sider, and Murphy’s Law.
