A Tampa Take on Shakespeare


Jobsite Theater is presenting Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” in a unique setting: modern-day Tampa.

Director David M. Jenkins says he hopes the setting will allow audiences to “grab onto the relevancy of the story,” which chronicles the tale of two cousins banished from the royal court who take to the woods in disguise. The show follows Jobsite’s previous performance of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” set in 1926 Ybor City.

Jobsite partnered with local label New Granada Records, with several area acts providing music for the play’s soundtrack. See the play Jan. 13- Feb. 5 at Shimberg Playhouse in Tampa.
