Each Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 from this Saturday July 16 to August 21, the Culver City Public Theater will perform Shakespeare's As You Like It. The play, one of Shakespeare's most effervescent comedies, features cross-dressing in the forest of Arden. Nuff said. Watch for the oft-quoted "All the world's a stage" speech.
