A good friend managed to get discounted tickets to see ‘As You Like It” at the Shakespeare Globe. The Georgian production by Marjanishvili Theatre is very funny and refreshing. I nearly laughed all the way through!

Theatre designer Nino Surguladze chose a minimalist set characterizing the “metatheatricality” (theatre within theatre) typical of shakespearian plays: (stage left and right host actors not in action although still visible to the audience) by contrast with stylish and exuberant costumes. A clever choice: the production looks great!

Une amie a réussi à obtenir des billets à prix réduit pour aller voir «Comme Il Vous Plaira» au Shakespeare Globe. Ce classique mis en scène par la compagnie de théâtre georgienne Marjanishvili, est très drôle et rafraîchissante. J’ai presque ri tout au long!

La scénographe Nino Surguladze a choisi un décor minimaliste mettant en valeur le concept de théâtre dans le théâtre (metatheatre) typique des pièces shakespeariennes et un contraste de costumes élégants et exubérants. Un choix intelligent: la production est superbe!
