The Best Theatre in London Right Now

Spotlight On: Royal Shakespeare Company's As You Like It at the Barbican Theatre
What do I need to know? The RSC have started off their residency at the Barbican with classic Shakespeare romcom As You Like It, and they're not holding back - this is a raucous production involving physical comedy, music and storytelling.
What's the big deal? The cast is hard to fault, from the simmering rage of Antony Byrne’s Duke Frederick to the fantastic chemistry between Phelps and the charismatic Khan Levy. Emily Johnstonestands out in her inspired turn as a party-planning Effie Trinket-reminiscent Amiens, raising chuckles as her heels wobble in the grass. (Her breathtaking singing as Le Beau also cannot go without a mention.) Check out our review here.
When can I see it? 26 October – 18 January
