There aren’t many reasons I desire to travel to eastern Canada; one of them is the annual Stratford Festival. This year promises a special treat:

This year brings “As You Like It,” lyrics by William Shakespeare, music by the Barenaked Ladies. The Canadian folk-rockers aren’t performing live in the show, but singer Steven Page wrote the music. He and the other band members also recorded instrumental tracks and worked closely with the actors and musicians who are performing live.

Like The Bard himself, Barenaked Ladies have always been great for producing high art with tongue well into cheek. But, as I can’t afford a trip to Canada just now, I guess I’ll have to settle for the CD.
