As we look forward to our upcoming 60th anniversary season, we come together as a community in this challenging time to look back at our 2019 season in Central Park. Join Kentucky Shakespeare for this rare, one-time chance to see last summer’s hit “As You Like It” from the comfort of your own home.
Shakespeare’s beloved, gender-swapping romantic comedy is set in the Forest of Arden, where lives can be transformed when you least expect it. This 2019 summer production, set in 19th century Kentucky featured live music with the cast performing original songs composed by Louisville singer/songwriter Aaron Bibelhauser of the bluegrass band Relic.
