The ever-adventurous Burning Coal Theatre Company, whose “Henry V on Trapeze” was by far the best local production of 2011, works its theatrical magic once again with a high-spirited presentation of William Shakespeare’s early pastoral comedy “As You Like It,” performed with brio by a stellar seven-member cast, under the direction of Davidson College professor Mark Sutch.
