Episode Info:

featuring interviews with actor Jessika D. Williams and
California State University, Dominguez Hills professor Kimberly Huth

With more lines than any other female character in Shakespeare’s canon, Rosalind stands apart. At once a cynic and a romantic, she chooses her own husband and launches discourse with him negotiating their domestic life — near-unheard of for a noblewoman in her time of arranged marriages. Featuring interviews with Jessika D. Williams — currently starring in CalShakes’ As You Like It — and Cal State Dominguez Hills professor Kimberly Huth, this episode delves into how Rosalind’s gender exploration remains utterly relevant to modern audiences, whether her disguise as Ganymede is actually convincing, and that fourth wall-breaking epilogue. And we gab about a squee-filled moment when As You Like It basically embodies a certain catchy Grease song.
