Anthony Hopkins as Audrey and Derek Jacobi as Touchstone in the all-male National Theatre production of As You Like It, 1967

"Anthony Hopkins struggled with the part of Audrey and threatened to bolt, but the role came into focus when he first donned a practice skirt (Sunday Times, 1 Oct. 1967). Hopkins put his discomfort to work, creating a performance that seemed ‘to have grown out of embarrassment’ and became the ‘funniest’ of them all, his Audrey ‘a bass-voiced Brunnhilde who sits expressionlessly through Touchstone’s advances and then grasps him in a bear-hug’ (Times, 4 Oct. 1967). At one point she thwacked him with a paddle. Derek Jacobi’s Touchstone ‘managed the incredible feat of making this clown actually very funny’, also contributing to the visual disorientation by being ‘prettier than any of the girls’ (Evening Standard, 4 Oct. 1967; Times, 4 Oct. 1967).” – Cynthia Marshall (ed.), Shakespeare in Production: As You Like It (2004), p. 75.

Viola | Filmlinc.com | Film Society of Lincoln Center →

If you’re in NY, the Lincoln Centre is screening two Shakespeare themed films by Argentinian director Matías Piñeiro: Rosalinda (2010) and Viola (2012).

In Rosalinda, a group of actors travel to an island to rehearse William Shakespeare’s As You Like It.

Short excerpt from Rosalinda

In Viola, a group of actresses performing in a production of Twelfth Night get caught up in a web of romantic intrigue and revelation.
