Milwaukee's Globe
All the world is indeed a stage for the Optimist Theatre – or all of Milwaukee, at least. For its fourth production of summer Shakespeare, Optimist moves from Alverno College’s campus to the stunning new amphitheater in Kadish Park, ideal for that full (free-of-charge) “Shakespeare in the Park” experience. Appropriately, this year’s offering is As You Like It, the Bard’s masterful romantic comedy that finds a cast of royals and ruffians spending much time in the Forest of Arden. Sitting on a Brewers’ Hill bluff overlooking city lights and the Lake Michigan expanse, we can’t think of a better place to ponder the cynical Jaques’ reflection on the seven ages of man.

As You Like It (July 12-21). Optimist Theatre. Kadish Park. 308 E. Lloyd St., 262-498-5777, optimisttheatre.org.
