About As You Like It
Last spring, The Bridge Project launched its inaugural season at BAM with an outstanding ensemble of American and British actors. Following the successful debut in New York, the critically-acclaimed company, led by Tony and Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes (Broadway’s Cabaret, and the films American Beauty and Revolutionary Road), embarked on a world tour, delighting audiences in cities including Singapore, Madrid, Auckland, Athens, and London.
Sam Mendes returns to direct year two of The Bridge Project, with another stellar transatlantic lineup including Michelle Beck, Christian Camargo, Ron Cephas Jones, Stephen Dillane, Juliet Rylance and Thomas Sadoski in an intriguing pairing of Shakepeare's pastoral comedy As You Like It and his late masterpiece The Tempest.
