World Premiere

Produced by BAM, The Old Vic & Neal Street Productions

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sam Mendes

“A joy to watch”
—The New York Observer

Last spring, The Bridge Project launched its inaugural season at BAM with an outstanding ensemble of American and British actors in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale and Tom Stoppard's adaptation of The Cherry Orchard. Following its 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.

Year two of The Bridge Project promises another stellar transatlantic lineup and an intriguing pairing of two Shakespeare plays as Mendes and company explore outcasts, power, and magical lands with their world premiering productions of the comedy As You Like It and The Tempest, considered to be Shakespeare's last play.

The complete acting company is as follows: Ashlie Atkinson (Phoebe), Jenni Barber (Audrey), Michelle Beck (Celia), Edward Bennett (Oliver)*, Christian Camargo (Orlando), Stephen Dillane (Jaques)*, Alvin Epstein (Adam), Jonathan Lincoln Fried (Le Beau), Richard Hansell (Amiens)*, Ron Cephas Jones (Charles the Wrestler), Aaron Krohn (Silvius), Anthony O'Donnell (Corin)*, Juliet Rylance (Rosalind)*, Thomas Sadoski (Touchstone), Michael Thomas (Dukes Frederick and Senior)*, Ross Waiton (William/Boatswain)*
