Ausschnitt aus diesem Artikel (Detroit Free Press - May 29, 2005):
... 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. (The Barenaked Ladies, who are fully clothed men, are scheduled to sing "O Canada" live at the opening performance Saturday night.) ...
... In keeping with the youthful spirit, Cimolino wanted the play's music to appeal to young people. Rather than hire a composer to write in the style of the '60s, he went with the Barenaked Ladies whose songs, "whether they're happy or they're sad are very word-based. I though they would treat Shakespeare well." To hear samples from the show sung by the Barenaked Ladies, go to http://www.stratfordfestival.ca/plays/mediaclips.cfm ...
