When Brits do Shakespeare, there's quite a lot to 'Like' : "

MEANING NO DISRESPECT to our fine American actors, there's just something so incredibly satisfying about hearing British actors intone Shakespeare.

The lilt, the cadence, the seemingly effortless ease with the Bard's circumlocutions, they all seem so alive in the mouths of the Brits.
Nowhere is this more evident than in 'As You Like It,' a production of the Theatre Royal Bath and the Peter Hall Company hosted by Best of Broadway at San Francisco's Curran Theatre.

Already a hit in England and elsewhere around the United States, this 'As You Like It,' which opened Wednesday, is easy to like thanks, in large part, to the crisp execution of the dialogue. "
