Gallery: As You Like It
Orlando (Danforth Comins) defeating the champion wrestler,
despite the champ being encouraged by Orlando's brother to
do him harm. It's a very theatrical moment near the beginning
of the play, and is handled very well in this OSF production.
It gets the audience on Orlando's side. Then comes the first
meeting between Rosalind and Orlando, when the sparks are
supposed to immediately fly. I'm not sure that really happens
in this production, but I should remind myself and you as well
that I only saw it once, on one particular afternoon.
