Like You Like It

All the world’s a mall in this totally awesome musical mashup of Shakespeare and John Hughes. It’s 1985 and the brand new Arden Mall is hosting a high school dance. Bookworm babe Rosalind wants to go with varsity wrestler Orlando, but she’s never had the guts to talk to him. Rosalind disguises herself as a frat dude named Corey and discovers Orlando’s true feelings for her. But things get tricky when “Corey” complicates the lives of three other couples at Arden. Rosalind will do anything to get Orlando, even if it means showing up at the dance as both herself and Corey. Filled with memorable ’80s-inspired tunes, a hip sense of humor, and heart, it all works out like you like it if you take the biggest risk of all: being yourself.

Listen to the original cast recording from Broadway Records.

Reviews

"If Shakespeare were alive today, he would have written like this.

The score… would be chart-climbers if this were a time when show tunes still climbed charts."

TheatreMania


"Never underestimate the power of a cast clearly having a ball on stage, as this one does under Igor Goldin’s zippy direction; half the fun of the show comes from watching so many talented performers enjoying themselves. …Excellent songs …Surprisingly funny choreography. …The cast is inspired."
