RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Playhouse and AAA Northeast bring the Shakespeare’s glorious comedy of love and change to the big screen in HD in an encore performance Sunday, Feb. 28.
This performance comes to the National Theatre for the first time in more than 30 years, with Rosalie Craig as Rosalind. With her father, the Duke, banished and in exile, Rosalind and her cousin, Celia, leave their lives in the court behind them and journey into the Forest of Arden.
There, released from convention, Rosalind experiences the liberating rush of transformation. Disguising herself as a boy, she embraces a different way of living and falls in love.
This performance will happen at 11:30 a.m.
The AAA Northeast at The Playhouse Live in HD Series is underwritten by Jeanne Cook, Anita and Nicholas Donofrio, Liz and Steven Goldstone, Sabina and Walter Slavin, with support from The Ridgefield Press and Whistle Stop Bakery.
Also coming up, AAA Northeast at The Playhouse Live in HD Series presents a live screening of National Theatre of London’s Hangmen at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 3.
Following a sell-out run at London’s Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster’s award-winning production of his deeply funny new play. In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry is something of a local celebrity.
