As You Like It - William Shakespeare I watched a version of this play set in 19th century Japan recently. I don't know why it was set in 19th century Japan since all the principals remained European and they all ended up in the Forest of Arden dressed like...well, 19th century Europeans.

But it did prompt me to reread the actual play, and I found I enjoyed it much more on the second go around.

(And despite my reservations about the setting, the video was pretty good, too.)
