"As You Like It" Interview with Dylan Clark

   There are just two more days until the premiere of the ARTS play As You Like It - and here's our final (so far) interview with the cast.

   But it’s a good one, as the incredibly funny and talented Dylan Clark checks in with his comments about working on one of Shakespeare’s finest shows:

Q: Tell us about As You Like It.

Dylan: It's a story about a bunch of people falling in love in a forest. 

Q: How does the show relate to modern-day audiences?

Dylan: There's some kissing, I think! 

Q: Tell us about the character you play.

Dylan: I play Silvius, a shepherd deep in the throes of unrequited love. 

Q: What's your background in theatre?

Dylan: I got myself a shiny BFA in theatre at Marshall University.

Q: Tell us about the cast.

Dylan: A ragtag group of misfits that band together against all odds. 

Q: Why did you want to be part of this show?

Dylan: Easy. The doublets.

Q: Why would you recommend this show?

Dylan: It's funny and looks neat.

Q: And how do you like it?

Dylan: I don't like it... I LOVE it!

   Thanks, Dylan!

   As You Like It by William Shakespeare will be presented at the ARTS Renaissance Ballroom at 900 8th Street in Huntington on Jan. 28, 29, 30 and Feb. 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 for the show only, and $30 for dinner and show - for dinner, you must make a reservation by calling 304-733-2787.
